Green Onyx is a type of gemstone that has been used for centuries, dating back to Ancient Egypt. It is made from a mineral called chalcedony, which can be found in a variety of colors including white, black, and pink. Green onyx gets its color from the trace amounts of iron that are present in the stone.
The name “onyx” comes from the Greek word “onux,” which means “claw.” This is likely due to the fact that onyx was often used to make cameos and intaglios, which are carvings in stone or gems that are made by carving away the background material to leave the raised design.
Green onyx is said to have a calming effect and to promote inner strength. It is also believed to be helpful in making wise decisions.
