The most well-known Greek mythical legend goes that one day, Cupid/Amor, the god of love, used one of his arrows to cut the fingernails of his mother Venus. As her nails fell from Mount Olympus into the sacred Indus river, they metamorphosed into onyx as they were believed to be divine. In ancient Greek, onyx means the nail of a claw or finger.
