Onyx is a rare, black or black-white mineral with banded lines. Its deposits are in India and Brazil, but since the stone is hard to find in its natural form, it is often substituted with dyed agates. However, in the long history of onyx (it was popular in ancient times), people used it for engraved gems (small engravings in hard material) and intaglios (gems with a design cut deep in the surface of the stone). Rings and amulets made from onyx served as seals. The raw material is from Brazil. If we look at its chemical structure, onyx is a variety of chalcedony, which is a general name for fibrous, cryptocrystalline quartz.

About the product: Facets are little flat polished surfaces cut on a gemstone. These bracelets are made from round faceted beads with a unique sparkle, which makes them perfect elegant accessories. The bracelets are sold either individually or in a package with 2, 3 or 5 pieces; but usually we offer also a 50 pcs package for an advantageous price. Our bracelets with gemstones on a double rubber band are approximately 19 cm long; they are flexible and therefore adaptable to all sizes.
