Used as a stone of strength and protection since ancient times, sardonyx is associated with courage, happiness and clear communication. It brings lasting happiness and stability to marriage and partnerships.
Sardonyx has a positive vibration that helps you to attract new friendships. It will improve your close relationships and is a good stone to aid the thinking processes, as it has a strong vibration within the crown and third eye chakras.
Sardonyx is a multi-coloured variety of banded onyx. Normally, onyx bands are black but in the form of sardonyx, they have alternating reddish-brown and white parallel bands. The orange and black bands form as a blended mixture of onyx and orange carnelian.
