Tips for Choosing
Only the finest quality, pure gems yield the therapeutic results we expect from gemstone energy medicine. The higher a gem’s quality, the more therapeutically powerful it is. As a gem rises in quality, its therapeutic potency often increases far more than its price. Going up even one level of quality can deliver many times more therapeutic power.
Next to quality, the most important factor in determining a gemstone’s therapeutic power is mass. Quality being equal, larger gems are more potent than smaller ones. If your neck is sensitive to weight, consider wearing somewhat smaller gems. Children usually require shorter necklaces and smaller gems.
Quality and gem size being equal, longer necklaces are more therapeutically potent than shorter ones because they contain more gemstone mass. Consider your comfort when choosing; for example, shorter people may prefer wearing shorter necklaces. If you wish to wear more than one necklace simultaneously, ideally they should be of different lengths. All necklaces 23 inches or shorter contain a 14K gold clasp; longer necklaces have no clasp.

Onyx stabilizes, heals, and strengthens your root chakra so that you may become more grounded and productive in the physical world. Onyx brings the seven color rays to all your chakras, except the crown chakra. In this way, Onyx strengthens your chakras at the deepest level so that they may function properly. It also promotes a healthy relationship among all your chakras, particularly between the root and sacral chakras, whose work is closely interwoven.
Some people have negative attitudes about the root chakra or consider it less important than the other chakras. If the root chakra were unnecessary, it would not be part of the human form. When your root chakra is balanced and functioning properly, you have the strength to perform and thrive in the physical world and to develop the higher chakras. Indeed, a strong and stable root chakra is needed to help you withstand the changes that will come into your life as you develop the higher chakras.
It is the nature of Onyx’s energy and its black color to absorb the seven color rays and bring them into the body. Onyx’s energy enters your root chakra. Then it rises up through your body, giving each chakra the message that it is all right for it to open up and accept color rays and other beneficial energies as your body needs them.
Onyx also acts like a lubricant for your chakras. In the course of a busy day, when you are faced with many decisions and must move from activity to activity, it is essential to have well-lubricated chakras that can respond to life’s shifting requirements. If your chakras are stuck and unresponsive, you may feel as though you just can't seem to manifest your goals, dreams, and intentions. For example, you may want to finish a particular project; you have the intention and desire to do it, but things just keep getting in the way, and you can't seem to follow through. By lubricating your chakras and bringing them the color-ray nourishment they need, Onyx helps your chakras become more adaptable, thus enabling you to perform multiple tasks with greater ease and to manifest your creative vision in the world.
Releasing Bad Habits
Onyx can help you break undesirable patterns or habits. These habits may be physical, emotional, or mental. An undesirable habit is a form of disharmony, and where all colors of the rainbow exist in balance, there can be no disharmony. Onyx helps your body become strong enough to accept an optimal and balanced ratio of color rays on its own. When this happens, the overall quality of your energy rises, making it easier for you to recognize your limiting patterns and habits.
To help you let go of a particular habit, Onyx first encourages you to become aware of that habit. It does this by intensifying your attachment to the habit—but only to the point where you recognize that the attachment exists. In this way, Onyx helps you see that what is destructive is not so much the habitual behavior itself, but your attachment to it. For example, many people who habitually drink too much or smoke don't believe they have a problem. When Onyx is worn by a person who has, for example, a habit of smoking, he will find his attachment to smoking intensifying. This doesn't mean that he will smoke more cigarettes or that the habit will get worse. Instead, the intensification will encourage him to recognize his attachment to smoking. With this recognition will come the realization that he is out of control and that the habit is controlling him.
As your attachment to a habit intensifies, Onyx also gives you strength. This strength is important, because it will prevent you from losing balance when the realization dawns that you are out of control. Instead, you will have the strength to let go of the attachment and recognize that it no longer controls you. If you continue to wear Onyx, you will also gain the strength to break the karmic ties with the habit, so that it is less likely to return.
If you want to focus Onyx’s effects on a particular habit, you can simply decide to put your attention on that habit. If you choose a habit that is really a manifestation of a deeper attachment, Onyx will work on the underlying attachment first. For example, if you choose to release a habit concerning food, when the underlying attachment really concerns your concept of giving and receiving love, Onyx will focus on the underlying attachment. If you don’t choose a particular habit, Onyx will first address your attachment to your most destructive habit.
Breaking and letting go of habits causes a change in one’s overall balance. Although this can be uncomfortable, Onyx will not create more imbalances or initiate more changes than you can handle. Because it helps the chakras accept the proper balance of color rays, Onyx will improve your overall balance. Consequently, you won’t be overwhelmed by the changes that come with the breaking of habits. Indeed, you will have the strength to make the changes required.
To live fuller lives, many people must become more secure and grounded in their physical bodies. Because of its effects on the root chakra, Onyx helps its wearer become more grounded. Therefore, people who tend to feel spaced out, disoriented, or detached will particularly benefit from Onyx. So will people who have difficulty concentrating on important tasks or who tend to live almost exclusively on the emotional or mental level. Often, such people struggle to maintain an adequate awareness of what is occurring around them in the physical world. Onyx can be a helpful tool for these individuals, especially when they must drive, use potentially dangerous power equipment, or perform some other task requiring intense concentration for safety reasons. At such times, these individuals should place Onyx on whatever part of the body is safest and most comfortable for them. The Onyx could be worn around the neck, placed in a pocket, or laid in the lap.
When I first put on Onyx, it was nothing short of a miracle. I was really struggling to get past some obstacles in my life. Instead of trying to scale the whole wall at once, Onyx helped me take it one brick at a time. Wearing Onyx helps me focus and gives me the strength to stay on task.

I am not a very grounded person. I walk on my toes and am pretty clumsy. I'm also a multi-tasker, and I get overwhelmed by all the projects I have going. When I wear Onyx, I feel so efficient as I work, I can't believe how much I get done. I also feel very balanced and strong in my feet. As a massage therapist, my worst quality is time management. When I wear Onyx, my sessions are much more organized, timely, and productive.

Several days ago, I decided I needed some grounding and help overcoming a feeling of heaviness that I’d never had before. So I put on my Onyx necklace with the intention of doing something constructive about this situation. That day I went from feeling completely wilted to having so much energy and balance that I tackled all kinds of tasks. My energy has remained high ever since.
The second I put on my Onyx necklace, I felt instantly grounded, centered, and aligned. It was and is fabulous. I love all of your therapeutic gems, your TeleSeminars, and your customer service. Thank you so much!

Wear It Around Your Neck
One of the most powerful and convenient ways to use an Onyx necklace is to wear it around your neck. There the gems will silently work for you as you go about your day. At night while you are sleeping, you can wear the necklace or keep it within three feet of your body to maintain your connection with the gems.
In addition to wearing an Onyx necklace around your neck, you can use it for more focused treatments. Onyx can also be used for more focused treatments. The simplest treatment is to place it on a specific area of your body to focus its healing energies there. For example, you can curl up the necklace and place it on an ailing, injured, or painful area to accelerate the area’s recovery. Here are two other focused treatments you can perform with this necklace.
Placing Onyx on the front and back "doors" of the root chakra lubricates the chakra's biomagnetic poles. This technique improves the functioning of your root chakra, so that you feel more grounded, can adapt to challenges more fluidly, and can perform multiple tasks with greater ease.
This technique promotes a greater awareness of the chakras.
Onyx can be worn continuously. However, it is always wise to be sensitive to your body’s responses. If you start to feel a headache or significant discomfort, take the necklace off for a while. Then allow your body time to adjust to the changes initiated by the gems by wearing them for only an hour or two a day. Gradually increase this time until you can comfortably wear the gems for as long and often as you wish.
Cleanse Onyx Regularly
To maintain their effectiveness, therapeutic gemstones need regular care. As the gems help us release energetic impurities, some of these energies cling to the gems’ surface and inhibit their ability to work at their peak capacity. A simple energetic cleansing will clear these energies and restore the gems to their naturally vibrant state. You can use any of following methods to cleanse your Onyx necklace. Learn more about these methods.
Plant Rejuvenation: 2 – 3 times a week, wrap the necklace around the base of a healthy houseplant or lay the necklace in its branches.
Salt Bed: 2 – 3 times a week, lay the gems in a half-inch of salt for at least an hour or overnight. Place a thin natural-fiber cloth between the salt and the gems.
Water Rinse: Rinse the gems daily for the first two weeks, then 2 – 3 times a week.
Sunbath: Every 1 - 2 weeks, lay the gems in sunlight for a maximum of 20 minutes at a time.
Caution: Avoid clay cleansing, which will dull Onyx’s polish.
When Your Necklace First Arrives
When you put on a new necklace or one you haven’t worn for a while, bring it into your aura with consciousness and a clear intent. We call this “practicing presence.” By opening yourself to the gems’ energies and consciously cooperating with the process of change, you can greatly enhance the gemstones’ benefits.
