What are Natural Black Onyx Rings
Natural black onyx is a variety of the mineral chalcedony. Natural chalcedony occurs when microscopic quartz crystals grow in different directions. Rather than forming large individual crystals, they interlock and create the mineral chalcedony. Commercial black onyx comes from treated chalcedony. The treatment involves boiling chalcedony in a sugar solution. Chalcedony is then soaked in an acid to carbonize and blacked the sugars. Ancient Romans used a similar technique.
Gemologists use different a definition for the term "black onyx." In gemology, an onyx is any type of chalcedony with parallel white bands. It forms in several colors. Chalcedony with parallel bands is "agate." Even though definitions differ, the jewelry industry accepts use of the commercial term. Like many jewelers, AZEERA uses "black onyx" to describe clean black chalcedony.
