How does an onyx affect the mental and emotional body of a man?


Onyx is like a tourmaline, stone of black color and crystals of black color are basic sheets from the negative forces, negative energies and persons. Onyx gives its owner a sense of stability, self-confidence, and firmness in making decisions. It increases concentration, strengthens the mind and makes thoughts bright.

The characteristic of the onyx is to eject the negative energy from the body, but it does not receive it because it does not have the ability to decompose.
