Ok I sold the Lapis and used the money I had left over from donating to both Art4TH and The Homeless Project to buy 14K gold filled wire. And a Green Onyx stone. I've always wanted a piece of gold jewelry and this is for me. Another treat for myself. I have left over wire from the piece and will use it to make a pair of earrings to sell.
Green Onyx has all the same properties as Black Onyx but is great for the Heart Chakra. It's strength giving. It provides support in difficult or confusing circumstances and during times of enormous mental or physical stress. Centering your energy and aligning it with a higher power, accessing higher guidance, is facilitated by onyx as is connection with the whole. It can take you forward to view the future and, with its capacity to impart personal strength, facilitates being master of one's destiny.
