Petite black onyx stones are suspended under a delicate gunmetal cap on matching gunmetal ear wires. These petite earrings are lightweight.
Black onyx is considered by many to be the stone of regeneration and new beginnings. Many consider it to afford protection and carry this stone while traveling (which is easy to do when wearing them as earrings!). In Greek mythology, it is believed that the onyx stone came from the fingernails of the goddess Venus. Not wanting anything from Venus to die, after Cupid trimmed the nails of Venus, the Fates turned the clippings into stone.
Black onyx is considered to be a stone of regeneration and protection.
