Eye Candy: Focus on Onyx

Do you believe that gemstones have metaphysical properties? Even if you don't, it can be bracing to wear a stone that is said to have them when you are in need of those properties. Onyx is said to help you meet challenges in life, especially those that would rob you of energy. It is supposed to prevent the draining away of personal energy and can be worn as protection. It is also said to help eliminate, and protect you from absorbing negative energy.

In addition, onyx is said to have medical properties; it has been used by some to help heal wounds, and it is supposed to make childbirth easier by increasing stamina and self-control. On that last one, even if it doesn't work, we'd be tempted to give it a try!

Onyx is said to be a good protective stone; it can be worn to help you through tough situations. It is said to keep away general negativity, and would be a good choice to wear around difficult people. Whether or not onyx actually has these properties, it is a beautiful stone, and we know you will enjoy wearing it.

Onyx has always been one of my favorites....maybe now I know why. I don't know how anyone could choose between any of these beauties.
