Step-cut black onyx--an artistic cut that creates parallel rectangular facets, unlike the diamond-shape facets typically seen. The remarkable beads have quality workmanship and beautiful clarity. Slightly graduated in size, you can easily create a spectacular necklace by adding chain and a clasp. The hand-cut beads may vary in size. Temporarily strung with tassels for a nice presentation.
