What You're Saying About our Onyx Beads
I love the drama of black beads, and the Onyx strand I purchased is beautiful. They will be used with
or carnelian beads in a necklace or two.
- Fran from Ulysses, KS
Onyx is the fascinating stone.These beads are simply beautiful. When I hold one on my palm, I think of velvety warm summer night with lots of stars in the sky that is so infinite and unfathomable. I love onyx.
