This gemstone beauty counted cross stitch pattern entitled Onyx designed by Tracey Marvel Kramer showcases the Onyx gemstone and how it looks carefully placed in our model’s hair. The onyx in its initial natural state is sort of grayish in tone, but the process of refining it is used to give it its characteristic color which is black. In Victorian times, jewelry for mourning was made from this stone. The onyx stone is mentioned in the Bible as one of the stones used in building the House of God. (I Chronicles 29:2). The stone along with other precious stones are prepared by David whose son Solomon was to use them to build the House of God. Onyx is also mentioned in Genesis as one of the precious stones used by Adam and Eve to cover themselves in the Garden of Eden. (Ezekiel 20:13). The onyx gemstone is found in many areas of the world including Greece, Argentina, certain states in America, Brazil, China, Canada, Uruguay, Germany, Indonesia, Pakistan, Madagascar and Czech Republic. The symbolic traits associated with Onyx are strength, protection, sadness, increased stamina, vigor, and encouragement of happiness.
