Onyx is a chalcedony Quartz that is mined in Brazil, California, India, and Uruguay. It has a fine texture and black colour; however, some onyx also displays white bands or ribbons against a black or brown background and this variety is known as sardonyx. The name comes from the Greek word Onyx which means claw. Legend says that one day while Venus was sleeping Eros/Cupid cut her fingers and left them scattered on the ground. Because no part of a heavenly body can die, the gods turned them into stone which later became known as Onyx.
