|the last couple of time I've had acupuncture for arthritis in my spine, I've felt like I was holding a black, smooth and faceted rock in my left hand. I have enough energy training to know that whatever this was, it was some sort of "sink". My acupuncturist suggested "onyx" when I talked to her about it. I've just looked it up. This description nails it. Excellent article, short and to the point. (Submitted by: Sandra Neary on April 04, 2018)|
