Onyx is a chalcedony quartz and considered a gemstone. Its origin is grounded in ancient myth. The word Onyx means fingernail or claw in Greek. The legend claims the Greeks and Roman’s believed Cupid clipped Venus’ nails on the banks of the Indus River. The goddess’ nails fell into the water and sank to the bottom where they were transformed into onyx. Its smooth texture allows it to be carved; therefore, it was used in ancient times to make figurines of the gods, for ceremonies and burials. In Victorian times, it was used by women in mourning who were only allowed to wear black. Onyx is found all over the world and various regions including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Germany, India, Indonesia, Pakistan, Madagascar, Latin America, the UK, and various states in the US., Uruguay and Yeman.
