You will immediately recognize the Grade A quality of our Black Onyx beads the second you lay eyes on them! Onyx is a type of banded stone whose bands are often black or white, but can be almost any color. Sardonyx is a variant that has sard, or shades of red, color bands. Black onyx is a well known variety, although onyx with other types of colored bands are actually more commonly found. To see our selection of coordinating onyx pendants, please click here.
SmartBeadShopping™ Tip: Virtually all "black onyx" on the market is dyed, as the natural stone is rarely a pure black. We carry only premium grade onyx that is not mixed with glass or composite.
