The onyx stone, also known as onyx, is a semiprecious stone of volcanic origin that is also very important in esotericism, for its multiple benefits and powers.
This calcareous rock is composed of multiple bands that can vary in texture and color, from white to almost any color except some shades of blue and purple. The most common are onyx stones in white, red, yellow but mostly black.
If the bands of the calcareous rock are parallel to each other, the stone is called onyx. If the bands are disordered, it is called agate, which is another stone with multiple esoteric uses.
The onyx will absorb as in a black hole any negative energy that is within us or that comes to us from outside, in the form of attacks of negativity, bad vibes or in moments that cause us stress, pain or physical and mental confusion.
It is good to use an onyx once a week to cleanse our aura and it is also recommended when we know we are going to meet negative people or situations; also when we visit hospitals or funeral homes, where the energy is heavy and the atmosphere is one of sorrow and sadness.
It is also said that some onyx object or amulet in our house helps to purify the energy. After the visit of negative people at home, you can put an onyx in the corners or where that person was and the stone will clean the energy of the place.
When we carry an onyx, especially black onyx, with us, as in a jewel, it is important to emphasize that it has great powers of protection and self-control, and it is said to create a balance with emotion and passion, while regulating negative feelings and stress in general.
Onyx also has a peculiar vibratory power.
Onyx favors meditation, concentration and our powers of analysis. Also, when meditating and even for sleeping, it may provide visions and guidance through meditation and dreams, to advise us on what to change in our lives.
It is also very important to communicate to you that an onyx must be constantly cleaned. It is recommended that every time you use it, wash it with running water and let it recharge.
