As you may already know, all gemstones seem to come with a jam-packed history. Onyx is one stone that is steeped in mythology. Legends tell of how the Greek gods formed the stone and of its close connection to Venus, the goddess of love and beauty.
Most commonly thought of as a smooth black gemstone, onyx , a type of stone known as chalcedony, can actually be found in many colors. Onyx’s name comes from the ancient Greek word meaning nail or claw. While onyx’s inky black hues may not remind many of fingernails, it is interesting to note that all shades and colors of chalcedony – from white to black – were known as onyx in the ancient world.
