Onyx

Discover the stone

Back to black in a voyage that brings you to the center of the Earth where your innate love for beauty is hidden. The onyx stone is unpretentious and reveals its aural splendor, whispering it in our ear. It delights the fingers, caresses the neck, until it moves the heart with its silent essence.

At the origin of the name onyx lies a fascinating myth. It is the story of Greek god Eros who shot an arrow at sleeping Aphrodite and broke one of her nails. The nail fell into the water and forming part of an immortal being, it went on living by transforming itself into a stone. Thus the name onyx, which in Greek means “nail” or “claw”. The onyx stone is a variety of chalcedony. Whereas the ancient Greeks called "onyx" every color of chalcedony (from white to black), the Romans associated the word exclusively to black and dark brown gems. Onyx was highly appreciated in ancient times: it was the favorite gem of the King of Tyr. The Romans used it for seals and ornaments. In 15th century England, it was considered a precious amulet. Onyx helps fight off melancholy by means of optimism. It chases away nightmares and envy by bringing serenity to the soul. It is a stone close to maternity and the elements linked to the earth. It is the symbol of the planet Saturn.
