Named for the Greek word for "fingernail" or "claw," the legend of onyx begins with a Greek myth starring Venus and Cupid. As Venus slept on a river bank, Cupid manicured her nails; each clipping that fell into the water was transformed into onyx. The ancient Romans believe the stone bestowed courage, and sent soldiers into battle wearing the protective stone. Today some continue to believe that onyx brings strength and protects the wearer from worry--while others love this stone for its classic beauty that can dress up any outfit.
