Coming from a place of strength, Onyx is actually black and white banded Chalcedony, a cryptocrystalline Quartz. Throughout history, Onyx has been revered and referenced in sacred texts and manuscripts and is the first precious stone mentioned in the Bible. Mined in Pakistan and Mexico, this matte Onyx is 100% natural. It would be a shame to cover these amazing beads all over with beadweaving like in Carrier Bead Bracelet, but some seed bead embellishment would look fantastic. Because they are made from natural stones, expect variations in color, shape, and size. Because of the expanse of the matte stone surface, you may see some normal scratches and imperfections.
Sold by the 8 inch strand approximately 19-20 beads.
