Blue Onyx is a variety of Onyx, which is a type of Chalcedony, that crystallizes in the form of blue, white, and brown-banded masses. Just like Blue Chalcedony, its color is caused by what we refer to as the “Tyndall Effect” which occurs when light scatters from colloid-sized particles. The highest-quality Blue Onyx is found in Argentina, while most other commercial deposits are found in Mexico.
Blue Onyx is a very durable and easily carvable stone that results in a stunning product. It is nearly impossible to find Blue Onyx in raw formation as it is highly desired by manufacturers. You can find many shapes of Blue Onyx at national gem shows, as well as exquisite carvings that can sell for close to five figures!
Blue Onyx is a stone of the throat chakra that opens your communicative skills to not only yourself but also the world around you. It is much easier for you to talk about your heartfelt emotions when you are at peace with yourself, and working with Blue Onyx will help you achieve that. This mineral is a member of the Quartz family and its energies are naturally enhanced and can be often felt to the touch. Try placing a piece directly over your throat chakra during or after your meditation, or even carrying a piece with you throughout your day! You may initially notice a sense of overall softening of your attitude and reactions to others. This inner reflection teaches you that you are only able to treat others how you treat yourself.
We suggest meditating with other communicative stones such as Aquamarine, Angelite, Blue Calcite, Blue Barite, Blue Kyanite, Hemimorphite, and Iceland Spar. All of these stones together can help you perfect your tone, instill a wider vocabulary, and confidence when speaking to speaking to larger crowds. Great communication comes from great leadership; this is contributed to perfecting your confidence.
