Black Onyx Beads
The traditional gemstone Onyx was a stone loved by both the ancient Greeks and the Romans. In fact, the name of Onyx comes from the Latin word "onux”, which meant fingernail or claw. Calling the stone “fingernail” is reasonably descriptive when one looks at a type of onyx known as sardonyx. Sardonyx has patches of translucent banding, the color of which is reminiscent of human fingernails. It is a little less apparent when looking at the deep black onyx used for beadwork.

Most black onyx beads available today are dyed to augment the natural color of the stone, creating a rich black surface with a lustrous shine. Some stone carvings and items labeled onyx are actually calcite, a much softer stone and not really onyx. So when considering purchasing large carved items that are labeled onyx, it is good to be aware of this. Fortunately, true onyx makes stunning beads and faceted black onyx beads are especially attractive. The stone is wonderful when set off against sterling silver and is also great paired up with other stones in vibrant colors.

If you read much history, you will find that most gemstones available to the Ancient people of the Mediterranean coast were associated with Greek and Roman mythology. In a way, gemstones provide a crucial clue as to how the citizens of old cultures spent their time and what was important to them. Both the Romans and Greeks loved gemstones and both were adept at creating beautiful jewelry and ornaments with various precious stones.

The Romans were especially good at intaglio engraving and fantastic examples of carved cameos can be seen today at museums such as The British Museum and  the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Onyx was a particularly popular stone for creating elaborate carved scenes of gods and goddess and for making likenesses of the emperor during Roman times. The Southern European carvers preferred low relief carvings while the lovely sculptures of Asia made a good use of three dimensional space in their high relief stone sculptures.

House of Gems offers black onyx beads at wholesale prices that can fit well into a multitude of custom jewelry designs.
