“Stone of Contradiction”

ONYX is black in hue with strips of white covering its physical appearance. It is a stone of great aid when it comes to understanding the self and the shadow self, which is the reason it is known as the stone of self-mastery.

ONYX teaches the importance of self-control and self-discipline

ONYX offers protection against any and all negative energy, such as psychic attacks and black magick. Sense Onyx is a black stone, it holds the power to enable one the ability of invisibility.

ONYX takes aggressive energies uses them to formulate physical and mental strength, persistence and endurance, helping one to be master of one’s own destiny.

Metaphysical practitioners have come to appreciate the contradictory powers of Onyx, the negative and positive traits. It integrates the dualities within the Self fortifying our will power to ensure we achieve self-mastery.

  1. I had 2 people from my family who were constantly making threats and attacking me in every way (morally, financially, psychologically, emotionally and one time even physically, and would slander me), but my onyx didn’t help. It was only when I got an obsidian that these people simply disappeared from my life and never came back, for no apparent reason. They seemed unable to approach me, until they simply went away. Onyx is extremely good for removing any negativity, heaviness and even fatigue from me, but seems to not shield me, at least not against physical, incarnate adversaries. I was once cursed in my dreams by an entity and started to have continuous financial losses, my sales would be delivered to my clients damaged (I always checked them before sending, and there were no damages) or be returned, until I took measures to break the curse and all went back to normal, so it seems to not help with all spiritual attacks, either. So I doubt the claim that it protects against any and every negativity. I was doing everything right (cleaning my onyx with salt for 24 hours and charging in the sun for 2 hours).

  2. I love this site for looking up the metaphysical and healing properties of stones…

    I would also say that mycrystalpedia.wordpress.com would be an amazing app for the App Store if it was ever made as an app for people interested in crystals.

    It would be portable and lightweight as opposed to carrying a crystal book around… lol
