    Brief Description: Onyx is a variety name of opaque black and white banded Agate. Specimens are cut and polished to create stunning examples. Any other banded Agate colours, or Calcites labelled Onyx are not strictly Onyx. Onyx is distinguished by evenly spaced black and white bands. Onyx is a variety of Chalcedony, which is a variety of microcrystalline fibrous Quartz. The colour is due to minute quantities of various elements; and the banding is due to the gradual cooling of the silica.

    Mythology:  Onyx is mentioned in the Bible at various points, such as in Genesis 2:12 "and the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone"; and in Exodus, one of the offerings for the sanctuary was to be onyx stones. Onyx (or Sardonyx) is one of the precious stones foreseen in the foundation of the city of Heaven in Revelation. It has a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewellery, where it is usually cut as a cabochon or into beads. It has also been used for intaglio and hardstone cameo engraved gems, where the bands make the image contrast with the ground. Some onyx is natural but much of the material in commerce is produced by the staining of agate. Onyx was used in Egypt as early as the Second Dynasty to make bowls and other pottery items. Use of sardonyx appears in the art of Minoan Crete, notably from the archaeological recoveries at Knossos.

    Usage: It is the ultimate fertility crystal. A Moonstone necklace worn during lovemaking at full moon harmonizes the body into the natural lunar cycle. Or, for fidelity or fertility, make a grid of thirteen Moonstone crystals with a circle of the twelve months around a bedroom, and one centered under the bed. Moonstone opens the heart to nurturing qualities as well as assisting in the acceptance of love. It is an excellent crystal for first or new love, and is a comforting talisman if love must be kept a secret. It was also believed to be able to reunite loved ones who had parted in anger. Moonstone is also the stone of love and eroticism, stimulating the kundalini energy and carnal desires.

    Metaphysical Properties: Onyx enhances clairsentient and psychometric abilities. Onyx is good for centring ones personal energy and allows access to higher spiritual guidance, wisdom and self control. Onyx is known as a good luck stone, and also eases recove
