Pronouncing Chalcedony - The Final Word

Im often asked how to pronounce Chalcedony and I say it is correct to say either Cal-said-a-knee or Cal-sa-doe-knee. The variations occur due to Gemology being a global science and pronunciations can change with every language and where we choose to accent a word. Its like the old saying you say po-tay-toe I say po-tah-toe- but really who says po-tah-toe? So I recommend we all pronounce Chalcedony Cal-said-a-knee. Agreed? Now time to address Perry-dot.
