Both Tourmaline and Onyx are highly protective stones that are worn to repel negativity from entry. Known as "receptive stones," they absorb and transform negative into positive energy. Tourmaline and Onyx are particularly useful for anyone struggling in a difficult or stressful environment.
Onyx is the Greek word for "claw" or "fingernail." According to Greek legend, the god, Eros cut the nails of Aphrodite while she slept. But because the clippings were of divine origin, they transformed into stone. And Onyx was born.
