Onyx has captivated the imaginations of many minds over the centuries for its mysterious blacks and whites that continue to play an important part of modern society due to their symbolism and perceived properties. Many believed in its dark power of dampening sexual urges and demonic power as a form of protection. Others use onyx and jet to remember passed loved ones during the Victorian era. Perhaps a token of safe passage. Even the celebrated Amber Room of St. Petersburg, Russia, globally revered, contained mosaics made from marble and onyx. The Ancient Greeks and Romans also carved stunning cameos from onyx and sardonyx.
Black is often associated with the supernatural, wisdom, knowledge, fertility, purity of spirit, protection, cleansing and detoxing, darkness and life and death.
In spiritual circles (death is the partner to life) Onyx represents the closing of a cycle or chapter from which new life or fresh energy can prevail.
In the same way that charcoal absorbs toxins, black crystals can absorb negative energies and provide protection. Black onyx allows the wearer to move forward with confidence.
