The interesting onyx offers an extraordinary banding in the colors black and white, which makes it a coveted gemstone. In popular belief, the appealing mineral was already ascribed a protective function against evil and dark magical powers in ancient times, so that onyx was often processed into protective amulets and the dead were given to their graves as a last escort to protect them from negative energies in the afterlife . Traditionally, the onyx is used to give stability, to strengthen the willpower of its owner and to support the recognition of one's own goals.
