Strength, Willpower, Encouragement

Black Onyx, a Chalcedony, is an excellent stone for grounding. Onyx can open the chakras and allow the better flow of positive energies. It is also an excellent stone to get rid of negative perceptions. It will help you in letting the world see a different side of you. Onyx’s healing energies will also help you move on from feelings of grief, sorrow, or depression.  It is a stone of inner strength and is a great choice when needing to get through tasks that you don’t necessarily enjoy. It can increase mental focus and preserves physical energy.

The word Onyx comes from the Greek word ‘onux’, which means claw or fingernail, because the veins found on the stone look very much like the colors of a fingernail.  Major sources of Onyx are found in Mexico, the USA, Peru, Madagascar, India, Afghanistan, and Brazil.
