Significance of Black Onyx:
A hard stone with a solid, lacquer-like finish, the black onyx is commonly found in Brazil, China, Madagascar, the UK and the US. It has been used in hardstone carving, pottery and jewellery for centuries and was popular as a ‘mourning stone’ during the Victorian era. In some cultures, it is prized for its protective properties.
