Verde Onyx

Onyx, a stunning dark gemstone, has been used throughout the ages in carvings and jewellery, where it was usually cut as a cabochon or into beads. During the rule of Alexander the Great, when cameos gained popularity, Onyx became a material of choice for Greek and Macedonian artisans.

Onyx, similar to Agate, is a banded variety of the oxide mineral Chalcedony. The colours of its parallel bands range from white to brown, grey, green and black.

This gemstone is believed to create comfort in new environments, help overcome loneliness and build the balance between mind and emotions, assisting with decision making. It is associated with the Root Chakra, protecting and stabilizing personal energy. Onyx is often recommended to athletes as it increases strength, endurance, and perseverance, especially if placed on the Solar plexus.
