Onyx is a form of chalcedony, which is a microcrystalline quartz formed in the gas cavities of lava. When the stone has a black base and a white upper layer, it's called onyx. Black onyx is uniformly black chalcedony. Black onyx is thought by some to have protective qualities, making it advantageous to carry when traveling. It is said to be useful in fighting basic fears and helping to move beyond bad relationships—as well as to heal old emotional wounds. The Romans associated onyx with courage and it is thought to be useful when one is defending him/herself against unfair criticism.
Since black onyx is a natural stone, each pair of earrings is unique and colors may vary. Our earrings are handcrafted using the finest materials to ensure that your earrings will be a beautiful addition to your wardrobe for many years to come. Black onyx is a relatively soft stone and is fairly porous, so it should not be cleaned with harsh chemicals, steamers or ultrasonic cleaners. Even mild detergents are not recommended. The best method for cleaning black onyx is a soft, dry cloth or brush. The cloth can be moistened with water when necessary. If you do wet the stone, be sure to dry it before storing or wearing. Put on your onyx jewelry after you've applied makeup, hair products and perfumes so the chemicals do not end up soaking into the gemstone. Store onyx jewelry in a soft cotton or velvet cloth so the stone does not end up scratched by harder stones and metal settings.
