💎 BLACK ONYX LORE:
Onyx has served as a bead making stone for centuries. Many ancient cultures, including the Greeks and Romans, used Onyx to carve figures of the gods and heroes in cameos and intaglio engravings, to make stamps and seals and stone inlays and tiles. Today, Black Onyx is thought to harmonise the physical with the spiritual. It helps to alleviate fears and worries during periods of strong overwhelming emotions, as well as helping its wearer to maintain a positive outlook and relieve tension. If you are studying or undergoing training for work, it is believed that Black Onyx is a great stone to wear as it increases concentration and devotion, and helps provide strength and support during times of stress. In addition, Black Onyx helps promote self control and stamina, helping its wearer to make wise decisions. Onyx also helps to encourage happiness and good fortune, removing negativity from oneself and their environment.
