Black Onyx: Properties & Uses

The noble Onyx is a most ancient stone, known and utilised by even the earliest civilisations for its powerful energy and somber beauty. It deepens our connection to the physical, natural world. It connects to the body, to belonging to the earth and family, and putting down roots. It is grounding and stable, taking aggressive energies and using them to build up physical and mental strength, persistence and endurance, helping one to be master of one’s own destiny.

Onyx grounds and stabilises the emotional body, bringing strength in difficult or confusing circumstances and during times of stress. It calms nervousness and restores rational thinking and self control. 

Black Onyx is an excellent aid for grounding and centering during meditation. It may be used to cleanse the mind in order to be more receptive to intuitive guidance, and provides a grounding influence when working with high-energy stones that produce insights. 

Black Onyx stimulates the Base Chakras. Located at the base of the spine, it controls the energy for kinaesthetic feeling and movement. It is the foundation of physical and spiritual energy for the body. When the Base Chakra is in balance, the physical body gains strength and stamina, and spiritual energy is rekindled in the form of security and sense of one’s own power.
