STRENGTH • WILL • DISCIPLINE
A stone of myth, Onyx is believed to have originated from the fingernails of the goddess, Venus, which plays into its name: Onyx is from the Greek word for "claw" or "fingernail." Each of these are based on the fact that the veins of Onyx have the coloring of fingernails. For centuries, several cultures believed that wearing Onyx acted as protection against the evil eye, and has become a symbol of strength and discipline.
As every stone is different by natural variation, these mortar and pestles may vary in color and appearance.
