Onyx throughout history

The name onyx is said to be derived from the Greek word “onux” meaning “fingernail.” According to legend, Cupid clipped the fingernails of love goddess Venus while she slept on the banks of the Indus River, and to preserve them the Gods turned the clippings into gemstones. 

The term ‘onyx’ was originally used to describe all colour variations, but in more recent times the Romans restricted it to refer exclusively to the darker hues.

Onyx meanings, properties and energies

Associated with the Root Chakra, July's historical birthstone onyx is believed to protect you from draining, negative energies by absorbing them. It is thought to assist you with decision making, self-control and enhancing your intuition, and is also said to help you though sorrow and grief.
