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.
Mother of Pearl: Helps one accept others by removing blocks. It is cleansing and purifying.
Smoky Quartz: One of the best grounding stones available. It helps connect to the nonphysical chakras and bring one back to the physical world. It can protect from negative energies by grounding them to the earth, and assists in organization and sensibility in everyday life.
