Matte Onyx- 8mm Rounds
8mm Semi-Precious Round IHD: 0.8mm-1mm
Black Onyx has played a huge role in the history of jewelry since ancient times. It has long been paired with both silver and gold and the message of “glory and power” has not been lost on anyone. To modernize onyx, matting has been introduced. It requires additional tumbling steps to create the powdery finish: after the beads have been polished, they go back in the tumbler with just the right amount of grit to remove the shine and create the matte patina that’s so much in demand today.
Project Ideas: We love an 8mm round in laddered bracelets, but they're also pretty in Malas, and earrings!
Sizing info: With machine-drilled holes, laddering with Fine Weight C-Lon is a breeze! Hole sizes also fit up to 18 gauge round wire.
