The Black Onyx

We continue our journey to discover the special meanings behind the Sparkling Jewels stones. This time we give you the in-and outs of the Black Onyx gemstone.

Did you know that the black Onyx is the anniversary gemstone for the 10th year of marriage? Throughout history, Onyx has been thought to bring powers of protections and the reduction of sexual desires. Other people say that this stone brings increased vigor, strength and self-control. It alleviates worry, tension and nervousness...

This beautiful stone is formed by the deposition of silica in gas cavities in lava, which results in the distinctive bands or stripes we see in the stone. Onyx can be found in Uruguay and bordering regions of Brazil, Afghanistan, India and Madagascar.

We at Sparkling Jewels HQ love to wear black clothing and especially combine it with the black Onyx stone. Research in colour psychology shows that a preference for the colour black indicates prestige and power; someone who wears black takes themselves seriously. Get your Onyx treasures here
