Sardonyx is a stone of strength and protection that asks you to live at your highest levels of morality. It can help you unlock your inner courage and virtue to calm relationships and communicate your truth with others more eloquently. This stone attracts good friends, great fortune, and better habits into your life. 

Historical Folklore

Sardonyx is believed to be one of the twelve stones in the Breastplate of the High Priest of the Israelites.

Many cultures have carried this stone as a good luck talisman.


Sardonyx is a variety of banded agate, being a mixture of onyx and sard. This is also where it gets its name. This stone is typically found with bands of red, black, brown, tan, or white. It is primarily found in India but has been mined worldwide.

Chakra Association

Sardonyx is believed to resonate with the Earth star, base, and sacral chakras. 


You can place sardonyx in full moon moonlight to energize. It can also be moved through sage smoke or incense, placed in rice, or buried in the earth overnight.

Astrological Association

Sardonyx is considered a birthstone for Virgo and Leo.
