Black Onyx Metaphysical Healing Properties Information

Onyx is a very protective and grounding stone that helps you to find your own strength in any situation and it gives you the stamina and foresight to deal with whatever is happening.  Onyx helps you to overcome any fears you might be holding and allows you to make wise decisions to find the most beneficial outcomes of any given situation.   Onyx has a strong memory so is fantastic for grid work or programming, however, must always be cleansed before use.   

When working with Onyx the saying ‘strong as an Ox’ always comes to mind. It helps to bring through strength and sheer willpower to get through any situation with protection. Affirmation: Each step puts me closer to my goal.

Application suggested ways to use Onyx
  • Black Onyx should be worn for long periods because it takes time to unfold and assist and strengthen you.
  • Carry it with you in situations that make you feel anxious or fearful to release these unwanted negative energies.  Combine Black Onyx, Black Tourmaline, Hematite and Labradorite for this purpose.
  • It is a fantastic stone to program as it holds clear memories or intents but must be cleansed thoroughly before each new program.  A great Black Onyx combination is using it with Selenite and Black Tourmaline, particularly for protection purposes.
  • It is better to wear it as a ring or bracelet so that it is closer to your Base Chakra, but if unavailable a tumbled in the pocket will do the job nicely.
  • Can be carried on your person or meditated on.
