About Black Onyx:
Gemologically, natural Onyx is similar to other cryptocrystalline quartz and is much harder than some varieties sold as Onyx, which are much softer and are made of calcite. Onyx may be a multilayered black and white stone, usually with a black base and a white upper layer. Onyx is mined in the US, Italy and Mexico.
Black Onyx: Helps one to change bad habits and is a powerful healing and grounding stone. Black stone in the Feng Shui tradition is considered “Yin” and is folklore says it helps with emotional protection and increased power. It is associated with the root chakra.
Jade: Considered the most precious of all stones in ancient Egypt and even now in Japan and the Orient. It is credited with five qualities: clarity, courage, justice, wisdom, and modesty. It is folklored to evoke tranquility, so much so that even holding Jade in your hand may cause a feeling of serenity or wisdom. Consequently, it also said to help to the smooth transition to the next world and aids in peaceful death and dream yoga. Jade provides protection from from enemies and during long journeys.
