Used for thousands of years in cameos, religious reliquary, and jewelry, Onyx is the first gemstone to be mentioned in the Bible. Although we think of it as a rich, black stone, it is actually a chalcedony agate with white bands that have been stained to look deep black. Today, Onyx is mined in Mexico and Pakistan. In these beads the added faceting give it heightened drama. We are craving to pair it with gold chain and creamy white pearls. Holes sizes may vary but two passes of Tuff Cord #3 or Fine Weight C-Lon will fit easily. 18 gauge wire and .5mm leather will also fit. Imported by Dakota Stones.
Sold on 8 inch strand/ approximately 25 beads.
