Good morning my little gems.
I have a treat for you today for this weeks crystal of the week!
This weeks crystal is: Black Onyx
Onyx is one of the most ancient stones know and utilised for its super powerful energy. This precious stone was hugely used ceremonies and burials, magical work, and made into amulets on swords, shields and armour. This was to protect and strengthen warriors during battle. For many years many cultures, such as the Greeks and Romans, used Onyx to carve figures of their gods and hero’s in cameos and intaglio engravings. They would also carve Onyx to make stamps and seals, stone inlays and tiles, and as handles and bases for goldwork Onyx is talked about in many historical manuscripts and sacred texts. It is that precious and important that it was the first crystal ever talked about in the Bible, described in Genesis as an element of creation. It is resided with gold and the fragrant resin bdellium in the land of Havilah, an area surrounded by the Pishon River that flowed from the garden of Eden.
Representing the stillness of the night sky, the Onyx crystal stone meaning symbolises initiation and change in Peruvian and Native American traditions. This is because it inspires feelings of personal power that comes from facing your fears.
It is said that Black Onyx was feared in others and was considered to be “a bad luck stone” that caused black bile to circulate, especially within the mind. It was believed to invoke sadness and despondency, abrupt changes in mood, and make one angry and difficult. It could separate lovers, sow family discord, and expose one to the assaults of demons, bringing dreadful visions by night, quarrels and lawsuits by day. It was so feared in China, only slaves and menial labourers with no other way to make a living would go into the mines to extract it, where it was then carried out of the country and sold in other lands. The only preventative to these calamities was to also wear a Sard stone, most notably a Sardonyx, to neutralise the influence of the Onyx.

Black Onyx is also used to encourage happiness and good fortune so it's perfect for when you're meditating or when you want to manifest money into your life.
