These are beautiful old Black Onyx gemstone beads in their natural condition, they have not been dyed or treated. Black Onyx is a gleaming highly polished gemstone. These beads are large 11mm Black Onyx Dice beads that were superbly cut and polished in Hong Kong in the 1970's. They are cut to look like dice with a combination of polished sides and matte edges and corners. Similar to German Cathedral or window pane glass beads from the 1950s.
They are unlike any beads you will find today and really excellent quality! Hong Kong was known for producing the highest quality beads in the 1970's and 1980's.
Black jewelry is a classic and always in style. It is fantastic to work with and compliments most every color and type of gemstone.
Sold in packs of 6 beads
