I love giving Black Onyx to friends with boys of any age. It provides a sense of being in control of ones self. It helps to create peace in your mind and increase your awareness.
Contemporary authors say the onyx brings increased vigor, strength, stamina, and self control. It alleviates worry, tension, and nervousness and eliminates confusion and nightmares. It is used to provide glimpses of that which is ‘beyond’ and activates one’s memory of one’s roots and reality.
