Onyx is strength giving. It provides support in difficult or confusing circumstances and during times of enormous mental or physical stress. Centering your energy and aligning it with higher power, accessing higher guidance, is facilitated by Onyx as is connection with the whole.
It can take you forward to view the future and, with its capacity to impart personal strength, facilitates being master of one's destiny. This stone promotes vigor, steadfastness, and stamina. It aids learning lessons, imparting self-confidence and helping you to be at ease in your surroundings.
Onyx is a secretive stone that assists in keeping your own counsel. However, Onyx is said to hold memories of things that have happened to the wearer. It can be used for psychometry, telling the story to those who are sensitive to its vibrations.
This property of holding physical memories makes Onyx useful in past-life work for healing old injuries and physical trauma that are affecting the present life. Holding a piece of Onyx takes your attention to the site of the previous injury, which can then be released through body work, reframing or crystal therapy. Onyx can also be used to heal old grief and sorrows.
Psychologically, Onyx recognizes and integrates dualities within the self. it anchors the flighty into a more stable way of life and generally imparts self control. Onyx is a mental tonic that alleviates overwhelming fears and worries. Onyx conveys the invaluable gift of wise decisions.

After wearing your mala, the tassel can sometimes be less smooth. It is very simple to correct with a tiny bit of water and a hairbrush or comb. Lightly wet the tassel and brush it. It will dry naturally. If you are pulling a few thread, you can simply cut them so that all of the threads are at the same length. And here you are with a brand new tassel :)!
