For those of us who don’t know…
Black Onyx is a semi-precious stone with a ‘lush’ look that’s perfectly set off by brilliant sterling silver settings. Black Onyx is a crypto-crystalline form of quartz and rarer than onyx with banded colours.
Because onyx has a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewellery, a mythology has developed around it over the centuries. It is said black onyx can help you to find and focus on your dharma, your ‘true path’ and help you to safely, confidently and successfully walk that path.
The New Zealand Mint Jewellery me Black Onyx collection designs embody ancient mythological and religious cross, circle and tear drop symbolism.
