Matte Onyx- 6mm Round
6mm Matte Onyx Round IHD: .8mm
Black Onyx is a classic, semi-precious bead that deserves kudos for its long history in jewelrymaking. That solid, black color been with us since ancient times and it has always been dyed or treated to eliminate the natural banding in the sardonyx stone. 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 polish and create the powdered patina that’s so much in demand today. Holes are machine drilled so laddering with Tuff Cord #1 is a breeze. Hole sizes also fit up to 20 gauge round wire. Imported from Mexico and Pakistan by Dakota Stones.
Sold on 8 inch strands. Approximately 34 beads per strand.
