About Onyx:

Mohs hardness: 6.5 – 7

Onyx is a banded variety of the oxide mineral Chalcedony. Agate and Onyx are both varieties of layered Chalcedony that differ only in the form of the bands: Agate has curved bands and Onyx has parallel bands.

 It is a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles of conflicts of all kinds, or while hurrying down a dark street late at night. Indians and Persians believed that wearing onyx protected them from the evil eye, and that placing Onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labour would reduce the labour pain and bring on earlier delivery.

Onyx is the birthstone for Leos and the anniversary gemstone for the 7th year of marriage.
