Quartz comes in many colors and some of the world’s bluest is mined in the Eskisehir region of Anatolia. Deriving its name from Chalcedon, a district on the Asian coast of Istanbul (now Kadikoy), the stone remains a popular and affordable souvenir at Chalcedony in Sultanahmet. The shop’s owner, Bersin Gercin, is eager to impart the healing powers of this rare mineral — said to draw off negative energy and soothe chest ailments — and sells it as earrings, necklaces, pendants, carvings, or rough stones.
