About Onyx

Onyx is a form of banded chalcedony, just like agate; the difference being that onyx has parallel bands where agate has curved ones. Like agate, it is cryptocrystaline, meaning that silica crystals and moganite crystals grow interweaving with each other. It comes in a wide range of colors, though vibrant colors are usually artificial.

Onyx's name means "claw" for its most common coloring. It has a long history of use in hard stone carving and jewelry. It's oldest use was in Egypt, where it was made into bowls and dishes. It was also a very popular material in the Art Deco period.
