Onyx is a stone that appears in various cultures and it is regarded as one of the most popular gemstones in the world.
It is a type of oxide mineral that has dominant silica ingredients. The stone itself is famous for beautiful, silky luster that also looks vitreous if the stone is already treated and polished. Black colored onyx is of course the most famous and sought out variant.
Onyx is also part of gemstone metaphysical theories and gemstone healing therapies.
FOSSIL DINOSAUR BONE
Dinosaur Bone is probably the most exotic of our fossil materials — the fossil comes from a 100 million year-old Apatosaurus. Found and sourced in Utah, dinosaur bone offers the possibility of owning one of the most ancient zoological testaments of the planet. This permineralized material has a characteristic dark red grain, we resin-stabilize each piece and use an impact-resistant backing to protect the material during processing.
The ‘Yucatan’ is a beautiful bracelet that equally belongs to the past, the present and the future. Center bead is hand-crafted from fossil dinosaur bone – the last legacy of an apatosaurus that walked the earth 100 million years ago – surrounded by finely sculpted sterling ‘sugar skull’ beads and accents interwoven with frosted black onyx. Clasp also in sterling silver.
Just enough attitude to get attention when you want it, just elegant enough to belong to any occasion.
