Dark color glints with gleaming shine in the onyx 10mm faceted round beads from Dakota Stones. Available by the strand, these beads display a round shape and facets cut into the surface to give these glossy black beads extra shine. Use these beads with clear crystal for a fabulous formal look. 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.
Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
Led by Jeff Elvin, Dakota Stones offers beautiful semi-precious gemstone beads. They take care to have a high-quality finished product by following their gemstones through the process of creation from rough rock to finished beads and cabochons.
