The Many Benefits Of Onyx

The name is derived from the Greek term “onux” that means “fingernail”. The fabled origin of the onyx stone is that Cupid once cut the heavenly fingernails of Venus with the head of an arrow as she slept. He left the nail clippings in the same and they later turned to black stone, ensuring that no part of the body would suffer.

While black is not a color that anybody would associate with fingernails, almost every color from white to black was known as onyx in Greek civilizations. Today, when we think of onyx, we think of black things to set it apart from things that are white in color, or even brown or mahogany. Later on in history, Roman civilizations updated the term onyx to only refer to things that are black or dark brown.

Onyx that is found today in stone shops near me are typically heated and dyed for richer color, even though these processes do not decrease the value of the stone whatsoever.
