Black Onyx, like agate, is a very hard stone, and is also a form of the silicate mineral, Chalcedony. Onyx gets its name from the Greek word onux. Onyx in its various forms occurs in various worldwide locations. These range from India and Madagascar, to Australia and also South America. This gemstone has been in use for thousands of years, with numerous mentions in the Bible.

Mother of pearl is a natural and sustainable material made from the polished shell of a nacre-producing mollusc. When polished, Mother of Pearl has a beautiful soft, silky appearance, with simmering flashes of green and red. The colourful effect is due to the ‘nacre’ secreted within the shell. This is the same material that creates the beautiful lustre on pearls. The name ‘Mother of Pearl’ derives from the latin mater perlaum. Mother of Pearl comes from numerous countries, as diverse as the Persian Gulf to the Pacific Islands.

Metaphysically, Mother of Pearl will activate your solar plexus and throat chakras. Mother of Pearl can help you unlock your hidden skills and potential. It can also help reinvigorate and increase motivation, while bringing peace and happiness. In feng shui Mother of Pearl is a symbol of good luck, with the power and potential to attract wealth and good fortune.             Black Onyx is the stone of happiness, good fortune, and respect. This is also a supportive stone, one that can provide strength and comfort during difficult and stressful times. It is also a stone with powerful  protective energies, and one that absorbs negative energies. This is a stone that can bring peace and harmony to relationships.

The pair of Black Onyx & Mother of Pearl Cufflinks shown in the photos are the ones we send to you in an attractive gift box.
