So I have given myself an early Birthday gift, as much to cheer myself up as to give myself protection !! 12 mm faceted Black Onyx rondelles, rose gold beaten beads and a 12 mm lustrous cultured pearl – 21 inches length.
Black Onyx is said to bestow self control, decision making, intuition and protection. It is a powerful protection stone as it absorbs negative energy of people to release mental stress and promote emotional well-being.
Black Onyx is associated with the planet Saturn, and will bring a positive vibe for those born in the shadow of the planet Saturn. It is said to be a stone for the Leo zodiac sign. Well I am a quadruple Virgo but I have the Moon in Leo when I was born!
Anyhow, I fell in love with this gorgeous beaded necklace, and I bought it. It will look wonderful with my summer dresses and with my coloured winter jumpers! I am looking forward to wearing it with my nice red summer dress and will post a photo here when I can.
Black Onyx is very easily scratched if not handled with care even easier to clean the stone by using the commercial jewelry polish. Once polished, the piece should be washed with hot water and dried with a soft cloth. A drop of olive oil can produce beautiful light of the stone. Rinse water can also clean the dirt but do not ever soak the stone because it can fade the color. Avoid two stones together to avoid friction. Suggested to avoid the heat, light or excessive chemicals to extend durability of the stone.
It is really nice to have a thing of beauty that also helps raise one’s energies for the properties described above.
