The exquisite gemstone, Black Onyx, is a variant of agate - characterized by bands of transparency or colour variation, creating intricate and unique patterns. In its solid black form, Onyx is the most traditional black gemstone. It has a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewellery, where it is usually cut as a cabachon or into beads.

Onyx jewellery is worn to defend against negativity that is directed at you, and to fortify self confidence. Traditionally, black stones are believed to have protective energies, in the sense that black is the absence of light, and therefore, can be used to create invisibility.

Black Onyx features regularly in Najo's Collections, particularly our El Tribu (The Tribe) range, which fuses inspiration drawn from mysterious cultures with Najo's bold contemporary flair.
