Sardonyx Agate, a captivating variety of chalcedony, is a gemstone known for its striking banding. The name "sardonyx" is derived from the Greek words "sard," referring to the layers, and "onyx," denoting the black layers. Ancient civilizations highly prized sardonyx for its ornamental and talismanic qualities. This gemstone has been used in jewelry and cameos for centuries, with historical significance in cultures such as ancient Rome and Greece. Beyond its aesthetic appeal, sardonyx agate is believed to possess metaphysical properties, including promoting courage, strength, and happiness. Today, it continues to be a cherished gemstone for those seeking both beauty and meaning in their jewelry choices.
