Black onyx is the most prized and sought-after variety of onyx and has been associated with strength and protection since the earliest civilisations. It was frequently used as amulets on weaponry and armour to give strength and protection in battle, and many cultures utilised onyx as a material in which to carve figures of the gods and heroes, as it was thought to be a stone of strength and resolve. Onyx is grounding and stable, helping to build up physical and mental strength, persistence and endurance. It is also a useful stone for wise decision-making and amplifying intuitive gifts, especially instinctual intelligence. As a strengthening stone, it is also thought to strengthen and fortify the resolve of the wearer, and to dispel fear, grief, worry and stress as well as to banish grief and release pain from physical or emotional wounds.
