A powerful "Protection stone", Black Onyx absorbs and transforms negative energy, and helps to prevent the drain of personal energy.
Onyx is also known to separate. It can help release negative emotions such as sorrow and grief. Black Onyx aids the development of emotional and physical strength and stamina, especially when support is needed during times of stress, confusion or grief.
Onyx jewelry is worn not only to defend against negativity that is directed at you but also believed to foster wise decision-making.
