Onyx is a form of quartz that is mined in Brazil, India and California. It often has a smooth texture and often includes ribbons or bands of white against a black background.
When the background of the Onyx is brown this is called Sardonyx. The name Onyx is a Greek word that means nail or claw. Legend says that while Venus was sleeping Eros/Cupid cut her fingernails and left the clippings scattered on the ground. Because no part of a God can die, the Gods turned them into stone which later became known as onyx.
Onyx is the Mystical birthstone for the month of December. It is also the birth stone for the Zodiac sign of Leo. Onyx is also given on the 7th and 10th wedding anniversary.
