The month of October symbolises the end of the summer months and a shedding of the old starts for the year. The dark and dismal days of winter are finally starting to show themselves as the nights draw in and the evenings become darker and colder. Winter will be upon us before we know it.
For this reason Sardonyx has been chosen as my favourite crystal of the month. It is here to bring in a sense of happiness by dispelling any feelings of depression. The specific vibrations will allow you to rediscover the delights in your life. It can be of benefit to those who wish to attract friendships on all levels as well as bring in good fortune. Now who would say no to an abundance of good fortune before the year ends ……
Sardonyx is known as the ‘stone of virtue’ as it symbolises strength and protection, its energy promotes integrity and virtuous good conduct throughout the many areas of our life. It is perfect for gridding the home and garden as it is a wonderful crystal for repelling crime and deterring unwanted intruders. How perfect would that be for us all at this time of year.
Sardonyx is a variety of onyx that contains multiple bands and layers of carnelian and chalcedony and is available in the different colours of black, red and brown.
When used in a healing environment it is beneficial to the lungs and bones as well as re-sensitising the sensory organs and immune system.
Carrying a piece of sardonyx with you will increase your stamina levels and self control as it supplements your willpower and strength of character.
