The name "Onyx" comes from the Greek word for "fingernail," referring to the translucence of the white-colored layer of this multi-layered stone. According to myth, Cupid trimmed the nails of the sleeping goddess Venus. The Fates turned those clippings into stone to prevent even a part of Venus from dying.

While Ruby is the birthstone for July, Black Onyx is an alternative stone for the month and is associated with the Babylonian Zodiac sign of Capricorn.

Black has been associated with regeneration and new beginnings. Black Onyx is thought by some to have protective qualities, making it advantageous to carry when traveling. It is said to be useful in fighting basic fears and helping to move beyond bad relationships, as well as to heal old emotional wounds. The Romans associated Onyx with courage and it is thought to be useful when one is defending him/herself against unfair criticism.

Black Onyx can be cleaned with warm soapy water and a soft brush. Avoid exposure to household chemicals and extreme heat. Because of the hardness and durability of Onyx, it should be kept away from other gemstones and jewelry to prevent scratching softer materials.

Black is neutral, making it a great design element to combine with many different colored stones, other gemstone beads and all metal tones. Its deep, dark, lustrous surface can play a striking contrast to the warm-colored gemstones like Garnet, Carnelian and coral. Or combine it with any stone containing a black matrix such as Lapis Lazuli, Rhodonite and Turquoise to heighten these stones' vein detailing.
