Banded onyx is a variety of chalcendony that is known as a somber beauty. The stripes or bands are spread across the surface, and in this case the white stripes break up a darker beige and brown, bringing to mind cream in coffee. Nature has ensured that the stone is unique, but the copper wire weaving that frames it is as well. The pendant measures approximately 2 1/2 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide, and the bail will accomodate any cord or chain. It includes an 18 inch copper chain, and will arrive in a decorative box with a satin bow, perfect for gifting.
