Prized by the ancient Romans and Greeks, it was considered to banish grief and to show that separation, even of life and death, is an illusion. Today many people associate onyx with independence and dramatic flair. According to teachers of feng shui, wearing onyx beads and other onyx jewelry is a powerful reminder to give yourself support in the form of perseverance and grounded self-confidence.
