Severian watches the fight between Vodalus and the volunteers over the
shoulder of a "chalcedony angel."  Chalcedony is typically a lustrous
white quartz.  Vodalus lives and two volunteers die.

Later, in Urth of the New Sun, Sev makes love with Apheta, a lustrous
silver angel, and the new sun is created. The fight in the graveyard may
foreshadow the creation of the new sun.
