Onyx Pendant in Sterling Silver

 

Sterling silver ladies pendant featuring a highly translucent onyx gemstone.  Onyx is a popular lapidary material which exhibits distinctive bands of colour that typically alternate between black and white. Shades of red and brown are not uncommon but when present the mineral tends to be known as carnelian or sardonyx.  Due to its translucency the appeararance of onyx can vary depending on how much or how little light passes through the stone.   

Pliny the Elder Ancient Roman author and naturalist wrote about different techniques used to dye onyx and one of the reasons why it's considered suitable for dyeing is because it's very porous.  Although this mineral occurs in a variety of colours they can often be very subtle hence through the process of dyeing it makes stones more attractive for the wider commercial market.  Black onyx does occur naturally but the vast majority is dyed.  

This onyx pendant has been craftred entirely by hand in a fine sterling silver setting.
