More About the healing properties of Black Onyx:

Healing properties of black onyxOnyx is a form of chalcedony, which is typically, but not always, a banded agate. This stone has a long and interesting history that is worth learning about. Black onyx’s excellent, smooth texture and interesting patterns make it perfect for carving both jewelry and everyday objects, including cameos. The ancients sought it out for this reason, and used it to fashion tough and handsome pottery and bowls. Not to mention, the Bible even gives onyx the honor of forming the foundation of the City of Heaven. For some reason, medieval authorities took an intense dislike to this stone; they claimed it made love chill, brought on attacks of “frivolities,” and caused babies to drool. However they admitted a big plus side as well: it has a strong virtue as a protective and healing stone. Nowadays we’ve come to value the positive side of this beautiful semi-precious gem.



As an astrological stone for Scorpio:

Onyx is a stone for strength, hardiness, constancy, grounding, stamina, and self-control. All of these qualities come together in the layered beauty of onyx, which plays to the strengths of vigorous Scorpio. However this intense sign, often self-repressive, has also been described as having an icy exterior and a fiery inner core.  The layering of onyx reminds us to take each thing in turn, rather than obsessing about what should be or might have been. Grounding is important, especially when faced with Scorpion passions. This stone tells us that the time has come to focus on putting together the pieces of things we haven’t yet been able to figure out.
