Sardonyx: Stone of Strength & Protection
Protective stone that embodies happiness, optimism and confidence, motivation & willpower. Was used in ancient times to ward of crime and worn in battle for protection. Associated with courage.
May also promote lasting stability and happiness in relationships.
The Third Eye and Root Chakra are best associated with this stone, as are the zodiac signs of Aries & Leo.
The energy within crystals is believed to work in conjunction with our chakras, the body's energy centers. Although some believe that physical pain or dis-ease is the way the body points out energetic imbalances, if you are experiencing any physical or emotional issues, please be sure to seek professional medical advice.
