Yellow Carnelian Tumbled Stones
These are beautiful translucent stones that have been tumbled to develop a smooth, glossy finish. The stones range from light to medium yellow.
When we purchased these stones they were sold to us as Yellow Aventurine but we subsequently determined that they are a Yellow Carnelian Agate. Carnelian is most well known for lovely red and orange shades but with lower iron content it can be more yellow as with these stones. Carnelian is a form of chalcedony while agate consists of chalcedony alternating with fine granular quartz.
Chalcedony is cryptocrystalline, consisting of fine intergrowths of quartz and moganite. Chalcedony is also a component of many other rock types such agate, onyx and jasper. Agate consists of chalcedony alternating with fine granular quartz.
Both Chalcedony and Agate are translucent (if you put a light behind it, light tends to shine through).
The chemical formula of chalcedony and agate is SiO2 (as they are forms of crystalline silica).
