Onyx is a negativity sponge. It will pull ALL the negativity out of your body and soak it into itself. The only downside is that it needs assistance cleansing, so when working with it, you must cleanse it frequently (nightly if possible). It is a huge giver of strength, stamina, and self-confidence. It helps balance yin and yang energies in the body and helps us accept help in all forms. Onyx teaches us the beauty in both giving and taking, and makes sure that we are doing both.
