About the stones
Onyx is one of the birthstones for Leo and is the traditional 7th anniversary gemstone.
The name comes from the Greek word ‘onyx’ which means nail of a finger or claw. Legend tells the story of how one day Cupid cut the divine fingernails of Venus while she was sleeping and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as onyx.
In India, Hindus use onyx to ward off the ‘evil eye’ while in the Middle East, onyx is used as a worry stone that people rub between fingers.
Onyx is believed to be strength-giving. It provides support in difficult circumstances and during times of mental or physical stress. It promotes vigor, steadfastness and stamina.Onyx imparts self-control and is a mental tonic that alleviates overwhelming fears and worries.
Aquamarine is the birthstone for March and the traditional 19th wedding anniversary stone.
Aquamarine gets its name from the Latin "aqua marina" which means "sea water”.
Aquamarine has been a popular stone for thousands of years, decorative jewellery and amulets using aquamarine have been found that date back to 500 B.C.
Believed to be a precious treasure from mermaids, sailors have worn aquamarine amulets to keep them safe at sea, ward off seasickness, and protect them from Satan. The Romans believed that aquamarines could cure medical problems with the liver, stomach, and throat. Healers used it to reduce fluid retention and to calm the nerves. In the Middle Ages, this gemstone was used to reduce anxiety and the toxicity of poisons. It was also used to protect against gossip!
Nowadays Aquamarine is believed to be the stone of courage. Its calming energies reduce stress and calms the mind.
