Onyx is a term used for several stones. It has been dyed since ancient time, with the popular pure black variety, being dyed micro crystalline quartz. Its natural colour is usually brown, white or grey. Onyx used in architecture isn't a form of quartz at all, but a type of limestone marble. 

Although regarded as protective, onyx has a reputation as a stone of discord. Onyx was worn to cool the ardors of love, probably because it helps to balance the mind and emotions. Not only avoided by lovers, but also at night, as it provoked nightmares. However, it is thought to improve concentration and devotion, hence onyx rosaries. Onyx is a strength-giving stone, useful for athletes or people under stress. Its energy is a mental tonic and can help cope with worries, bringing harmony with your surroundings.
