Onyx is more than just a stone, it's a testament to the grandeur of nature. Derived from the Greek word 'onux', which means 'nail' or 'claw', onyx has been revered since ancient times. This naturally occurring banding of chalcedony, a type of quartz, displays sinuous patterns, a mesmerizing interplay of colors like blacks and whites, and a luminescence that's nothing short of enchanting. The stone itself seems to weave stories of epochs gone by.
