Skies of Glass
Onyx is an opaque agate of tan or white hue or with bands of both colors in straight lines. This semiprecious stone carves and wears well. In addition to being finished into gemstones, it is often used for figurines, statuettes, and game pieces, including the magical onyx dog. Onyx can aid in safe, relatively painless childbirths when ground and alchemically combined with certain herbs and the mother-to-be’s blood. The stone can also be used as an augmenting component in spells that prevent pain and negative emotions. Because of its association with black onyx, the stone is considered unlucky.
