Ridge, here's an article on sardonyx.  There are lots of color and pattern choices with this semi-precious gemstone.  The word was misspelled in the zodiac article that I posted earlier, which I didn't notice until now.  Thanks for your post!  I appreciate it!

 

Gemstones: Onyx, Sardonyx

Onyx - a symbol of eloquence.

 

Stone's names: Onyx, Sardonyx (with white and brown bands).

Color: The layers in these stones range from translucent to opaque for sardonyx.The stones vary in color, too. They may be white or gray, ranging to many colorful varieties. Sardonyx stones usually contain flat-banded, white and brownish-red bands. Onyx is a gemstone with alternating light and dark bands, which are colored in brown, red, black, white and grey.

Description:SiO2 Onyx is striped, semiprecious variety of the silica mineral agate with white and black, brown or red alternating bands. Its properties are the same as those of quartz.

Birthstone: Sardonyx is the birthstone of Leo (Lion): July 23 - Aug 22.

Wedding anniversary: Onyx is the anniversary gemstone for the 7th year of marriage.
Black Onyx is the anniversary gemstone for the 10th year of marriage.

The name's origin: The word Sardonyx is derived from the Greek, Sard meaning "reddish brown," and onyx meaning "veined gem."

Varieties: Varieties of onyx include carnelian onyx, with white and red bands, and sardonyx, with white and brown bands.

Care and treatment: Onyx may chip or scratch rather easily, so store onyx carefully and never allow two specimens to touch each other.

From the stone history: The name onyx was used by the Romans for a variety of stones including alabaster, chalcedony, and what is now known as onyx marble. Roman soldiers wore sardonyx talismans engraved with heroes such as Hercules or Mars, god of war. They believed that the stone would make the wearer as brave and daring as the figured carved on it. During the Renaissance, sardonyx was believed to bring eloquence upon the wearer and was regarded with great value by public speakers and orators.

Cameos are cut from stones, such as onyx, sardonix or agate, where different colors occur in layers. The background material is cut away, leaving the cameo design in relief. Onyx is also used in intaglios because its layers can be cut to show a color contrast between the design and the background.
Sardonyx at one time was more precious than gold, silver, or sapphire. Sardonyx is always widely used in cameos and intaglios.

Shopping guide: Onyx is a rich-looking, affordable gemstone. It is often mixed with pearls to create elegant jewelry. Treated agate is often sold as Black Onyx.

Healing ability: Onix is used as a heart, kidney, nerve, capillary, hair, eye and nail strengthener. Onyx is said to help one sleep. This gemstone helps to eliminate apathy, stress and neurological disorders.

Mystical power: This gemstone eliminates negative thinking, it is also believed to sharpen the wits of the wearer. Onyx is said to bring spiritual inspiration. It is a great assistance in holding emotions and passions under control.
Black Onyx is used to help one change habits.

Deposits: The chief localities of onyx are India and South America.

                        Sully16 and Harve$t Moon, I'm not sure if this is the right thread for my question or not, but here goes.       During my recent five (5) hour Emergency Room visit this odd incident occured that had nothing to do with me.   A lady housekeeper found a dime on the floor on her last trip in the room.  She told me that finding a dime is an indication of your deceased grandfather's presence.  I had not heard that before.  Your thoughts?  Thanks.

                        P.S.   A fasinating thread...5 stars!

                        Of all the joys life can bring, remembrance is the sweetest thing.

                          Maggie-let me look that up, usually deceased relatives are spirit guides , not to be confused with guardian Angels. Sometimes those who have passed check in on us from time to time.

                              Maggie, I did some digging, and found that there is a wives tale about finding old coins could be a visitation of relatives passed, nothing about dimes in particular, but mercury dimes were the origin.

                              I also found some other interesting facts on coins,

                              Carrying a coin with a hole in it.

                              Carrying a bent coin.

                              Throwing a coin in a fountain.

                              Carrying a silver coin with your birth year on it.

                              Finding a coin in the rain, heads up.

                              Keeping a jar of pennies in the kitchen.

                              Turn a silver coin over in your pocket during a full moon and make a wish.

                              Throwing coins in a new car to bring good luck.

                              To attract money, fill a glass jar a quarter full with rice and drop in a coin, have family members drop in coins and stir, keep in kitchen.

                              Fill a small green cloth bag with dried cranberry seeds and keep with you while gambling or playing lottery.

                              Picking up a coin that is not heads up.

                              Putting coins in more than 1 pocket.

                              Giving someone a purse or wallet unless you put a coin in it.

                              Handing someone a knife without first receiving a coin and vice-versa.

                              I hope this helps.
