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.”
Coral: Protects and strengthens one’s emotional foundation. It enables self-acceptance. Deep red in Tibetan Buddhism is associated with the Padma family which represents compassionate and passionate energy. Coral Malas are particularly auspicious for any red deity meditation practice such as Red Tara, Vajrayogini (Dorje Naljorma), or Dorje Pagmo.
Carnelian: Helps balance creativity and mental processes, and increase passion and compassion. In the Feng Shui tradition, orange is associated with creativity, abundance, organization and is “Yang.” This stone is associated with the second chakra and folklored to evoke fertility and inspire passion.
