This strong and steady stone is not one to be overlooked, especially in times of turmoil, death, grief and difficult endings. Black onyx supports and balances the root chakra, allowing you to ground in your physical body when you are otherwise overwhelmed. Used for centuries as an amulet of protection, black onyx is an excellent stone for those who are intuitive, growing their psychic gifts or with with past life healing. Danielle often recommends this stone for paranormal investigators, those who work around the deceased or haunted buildings as it teaches us about death and the spirit world while helping to prevent negative spiritual energy from attaching to you. Black onyx also gives a bit of a confidence boost by reminding you of what you have already achieved and overcome. When grief becomes “stuck” or it feels you can’t move past a loss, this crystal brings perspective of the cycles of life, death and rebirth in a way that honors and supports the grieving process, leaving you more able to move forward. This crystal is an excellent gift or healing ally to those grieving the dealth of a loved one, particularly if feelings of loneliness are present.
This stone is deeply associated with the Death card of the Tarot, which represents natural endings.
