About the stone
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.
