    I had no idea that sardonyx was a type of onyx even though it’s in the name! I love the Greek legend about onyx originating from aphrodites fingernails that Cupid stole and scattered among the Earth. The Three Fates didnt want to lose a part of aphrodites beauty, and they turned her nails to onyx, bestowing the beauty as hidden gems
