A variant of the agate gemstone and composed from chalcedony, onyx is available is a variety of colors. The gemstone has a long history of being used in jewelry and art and first grew in popularity with the ancient Romans and Greeks. Its name is Greek in origin and means nail or claw. This is derived from the ancient Greek story of a Cupid who cut the fingernails off of the goddess Venus with an arrowhead. The clippings fell to the ground and turned into dark stone in hopes that they would never vanish, preserving her heavenly powers.
Today, the black color is the most popular variety of onyx. Its shiny finish and fine texture make it easy to carve into a wide range of shapes, allowing it to be intricately represented in a variety of jewelry styles.
Caring for Your Onyx Jewelry
Like all other natural stones, onyx can be damaged if not cared for properly. Clean with warm, soapy water and a soft cloth, drying after washing. Avoid scratches by storing separately from other jewelry. Avoid exposure to oils, perfumes, and chemicals that may affect the stone’s vivid color.
