Shining black color combines with gleaming facets in these onyx 8mm faceted roundel beads from Dakota Stones. These rounded beads feature a glossy black color that is only enhanced by the diamond-shaped facets cut into 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. Each strand includes approximately 24 beads.
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.
