Put orbs of mysterious black color into your designs with the onyx 8mm round beads from Dakota Stones. Available in 8-inch strands, these classic round beads feature a glossy black color that would complement silver components well. Onyx is a variety of chalcedony that is similar to agate, with straight rather than curved bands. Nearly all black onyx on the market has been rendered a uniform, permanent black color with a treatment by sugar and acid or heat. This process has been used on onyx for thousands of years and does not decrease the value of the stone. It has a Mohs hardness of 6-7.
Metaphysical Properties: Often known as a protection stone, onyx absorbs and dissolves negative energy from the body.
