Aqeeq

Aqeeq, akik or aqiq (Arabic: العقيق‎) means quartz in Arabic, and agate in Turkish, however in the context of rings usually refers to a ring set with a chalcedony stone. Well-known types of chalcedony are carnelian, agate, and onyx. It is considered a semi-precious gem stone, and rings set with golden-orange variety of carnelian or sard have special significance in the Islamic religion.

There are many Hadeeths from the Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) mentioning benefits of wearing Aqeeq e.g. the Prophetic Hadeeth: Wear Aqeeq ring,  as it removes poverty. 

Another Hadeeth says: Wear Aqeeq rung, as it protects you from depression and sadness.
A Muslim complained to the Prophet (SAWA) that he was robbed. The Prophet replied him: Did you wear Aqeeq? It protects from every evil.

Hadeeths stated that the Reward of prayers is multiplied seventy times or more if you pray wearing Aqeeq ring or even any ring.

Wassalam.

I have read about the positive benefits of black aqiq stone, but not from our Islamic heritage. As far as the highly recommended and very mustahab stone that should be worn, it is the red aqiq. They usually refer to this 'red aqiq' as a aqiq kabadi, which means liver colour aqiq. 

That would be the best ring to get, with this specific colour. 

With prayers for your success.

Size of the stone does not effect the reward of wearing it.
