Black Onyx Crystal Meanings and Symbols

Black onyx symbolizes perseverance and has been used as a talisman and amulet to ward off evil spirits. In Western legend, wearing black onyx can bring joy, confidence, and sweet dreams. In China, black onyx is often used by the ancients to describe wealth, and it is also known as "the stone of longevity".

Black Onyx and Its Zodiac Birthstone

Birthstone, in European and American legend, corresponds to the time of someone’s birth, forming a connection between celestial bodies and gems. Onyx is the birthstone of the star sign, Capricorn. The powerful spiritual healing properties of black onyx can soothe Capricorn’s natural melancholy, introspection, and loneliness.

Black Onyx and Chakra

Yoga, which was popularized in ancient East India, divides the human body into seven energy centers. These seven energy centers are the spinning wheels of life force and energy that run along your spine. These seven parts appear in the shape of circles, and they are called seven-folded chakras. They are: the bottom chakra, the navel chakra, and the sun chakra. (also known as stomach chakra), heart chakra, throat chakra, eyebrow chakra, crown chakra. The black onyx corresponds to the root chakra.

The root chakra is associated with the Earth element and affects your sense of security and existence at a psychological and emotional level. Because its energy is connected to the earth through the feet, people with smooth operation of the root chakra will have a feeling of being "rooted in the earth". This feeling has the power of stability, making you more durable by giving you the certainty of self-existence. If a person's root chakra is blocked preventing a connection with the earth, they cannot be sure of their ability to co-exist in the world, becoming listless and aimless, without the grounded satisfaction of knowing their place in life.

Once you lose the certainty in your own existence, you will distort all the chakras of the energy system which may cause a systemic failure in your spirituallity. The worst case of this is losing the ability to function fully. Thus the influence of the root chakra on the emotional level is very significant.

 In the study of crystals, the use of gemstones corresponding to the root chakra, such as black onyx, can help some people who are easily disturbed by external spirits to establish a barrier for self-protection.
