Amazing and elegant deep Black Onyz druzy cabochons with little sparkly crystals.
Onyx is relatively uncommon in nature. It is the striped, semiprecious variety of agate with white and black alternating bands.
The name comes from the Greek onux, meaning "nail" or "claw", referring to the mineral's color, and it was used by the Romans for a variety of stones including alabaster, chalcedony, and what is now called onyx marble.
The name onyx is properly applied only to the agate variety. Other varieties include Sardonyx, with white and red bands.
As with the other chalcedonies, onyx forms from the deposition of silica at low temperatures from silica-rich waters percolating through cracks and fissures in other rocks.
Natural onyx comes from India and South America.
Onyx is popular for carved cameos and intaglios because its layers can be cut to show a color contrast.
