Black Onyx Sterling Silver Ring This is a spectacular ring that would look fabulous on anyone. The ring is made with a black onyx cabochon set in .925 Sterling silver with a set of 3 textured loose bands. The ring measures at a size 8.5. Each piece I create is made from start to finish with a creative and artistic soul in mind!!
Black Onyx Ring
Onyx can be identified by its black base and white upper layer with parallel banding. However, in the case of sard onyx the base is brown and cornelian onyx has a red base. It is difficult to identify when the material is a single color and can only be clearly distinguished from agate when seen in the rough, exhibiting visibly parallel and consistent banding.
Onyx deposits are found in countries all over the world, including Argentina, Australia, Brazil, India, Botswana, Madagascar, Mexico, Myanmar (Burma), Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Uruguay and the USA.
