Description

Sterling silver, also known as 925 sterling silver, is a metal alloy used in jewelry. Traditionally, it is 92.5% silver (Ag), and 7.5% copper (Cu). Occasionally, other metals account for 7.5%, but the 925 hallmark will always indicate 92.5% silver purity.

Sterling silver is an alloy, or combination of metal types. Unlike pure silver, which contains 99.9% elemental silver (Ag), sterling silver (925) contains one or more additional metals that add strength to the otherwise delicate material. Pure silver is naturally very soft, and would easily bend or break if used for jewelry without being blended with a stronger metal.

Onyx

Onyx protects its bearer from misfortune and illness and prevents illusions and nightmares caused by evil spirits. It is a stone of powerful protection and strength. It is reputed to bring unexpected good luck to its bearer and to protect them from the plots and ill wishes of their enemies. Onyx is a stone of inner strength and it enhances endurance and persistence. It is thought to increase one’s attention to detail, also to control, focus and direct the will and to boost the memory. This makes it an ideal stone for students, teachers and those who need a high level of focus. Onyx has been traditionally used to build up physical strength and vitality after illness or energy depleting activities. It assists to focus on physical goals such as weight loss and exercise. Onyx helps calm nerves, anxiety & hot tempers and is a grounding stone. Onyx treats disorders of the bones, bone marrow and blood.  It is beneficial for teeth and the feet.

Onyx is first mentioned in the Book of Genesis: “And the gold of that land is good: there is bdellium and the onyx stone” (2:12). It is then mentioned 7 times in the Book of Exodus, where the Onyx is set in the ephod and the breastplate of the priests of Israel.
