Onyx is a hard variety of Chalcedony. Unlike Agate, it is defined by solid black colour sometimes combined with straight, not curved, white lines. Onyx may have porous structure as is formed by the deposition of silica in gas cavities in lava.
Onyx was an important and popular material in the ancient times, used for making jewelry and ornaments. Nowadays it is most often polished into beads and cabochons.
Metaphysically speaking, onyx is believed to:
- increase stamina and strength
- soothe stress and tension
- decrease the pain experienced at delivery of a child (place it on belly)
- eliminate nightmares (place in under your pillow or bed)
- protect from negative energy, especially experienced from so-called "energy vampires" (when you are around these people, they would drain you from all energy and make you feel upset, unworthy, sad or even sick)
- help sort out past life issues
- help make wise decisions.
