Like twinkles of light from stars surrounded by inky darkness, the onyx 6mm faceted roundels from Dakota Stones display black color interspersed with twinkling shine. These rounded beads feature a glossy black color that is only enhanced by the small diamond-shaped facets that cover their surface. Onyx is a variety of chalcedony that is similar to agate, with straight rather than curved bands. It has a Mohs hardness of 6-7. 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. 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.
