Sardonyx is a crystal for strength and protection. It is believed to protect one from crime. Grid this stone in the four corners of your home, around doors and windows or any area you fear theft can occur. As a protection stone it is also recommended for explorers and those engaged in combat. Its protection qualities are ancient. Information about this stone can be found in the Book of Revelation, used in the breastplate of Aaron and one of the twelve foundation stones used in the wall of the new Jerusalem. Sardonyx has a mineral make up of sard and onyx. It is often layered in black, white, red, orange and/or brown bands of cryptocrystalline quartz. Take care to consider the colour combination of the stone. Red stimulates, brown is grounding, black is absorbing, and white is purifying. The colours do not cancel each other out. They do, however, buffer each other and maintain a median balance that allows you to affect change. According to legend, sardonyx aids in communication and provides its owner with elegant speech, as well as being a valuable ward against evil. Thought to calm relationships, as well as being credited with the power to attract friends and good fortune, this stone is believed to bring happiness to couples. It is also thought to increase regeneration, intuition and instincts. In addition, sardonyx is credited with decreasing sexual desire and promoting a change in bad habits.
Sardonyx stimulates our striving for a meaningful existence. It increases willpower and strengthens a virtuous character which in turn makes us more friendly and helpful.
Sardonyx brings stability, confidence and a hopeful attitude. It can be an aid to overcome sadness and brings about inner joy that is contagious to others.

Sardonyx is said to be useful in the art of mental self-control; this gem is traditionally said to aid in the cure of depression and anxiety but is particularly helpful in the easing of grief.
