Black Onyx is a legacy bead dating back from ancient times. Part of the Sardonyx family, Black Onyx has been used in jewelry since the times of Raj in India and Emperors in China. To eliminate the natural banding found in the stones, it has always been dyed or treated to get that rich black coloring. Holes are machine drilled so laddering with Tuff Cord #1 is a breeze. Pair it with the beauty of White Agate and you have a color story in black and white. Hole sizes also fit up to 20 gauge round wire. Imported from Mexico and Pakistan by Dakota Stones.
Sold on 8 inch strands. Approximately 50 beads per strand.
