Faceted Synthetic Onyx
6mm Glass Beads
If you shop at a gem show, this bead would be readily available with gemstone strands on the traders’ tables. But it isn’t real onyx, it’s glass. Like goldstone or synthetic opal, it is man-made to look real. The thing is we really love it even if it is faux stone! If you are making jewelry to sell, be sure to include a disclaimer that this is not real onyx. Manufactured in China, each strand is temporarily strung on monofilament. For stringing, we recommend Tuff Cord #3 or Fine Weight C-Lon. Expect variations from one strand to the next due to the natural material they are made from.
Sold by the strand. Strand length is 16 inches. Approximately 60-61 beads per strand.
