The Black Onyx gemstone is said to be associated with the planet Saturn, and it is the birthstone for Leo, the zodiac sign. Historically, Onyx is a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles of conflicts of all kinds, thought to give courage and strength. It's deep black saturation is easy to get lost in, and sometimes the stunning nature of absolute darkness speaks deeply to the soul. This cabochon is framed in solid copper wire weaving, and even the bezel is entirely decorated with a fern pattern to hold the stone securely in place. The pendant measures approximately 2 3/4 inches long and 1 1/2 inches wide. Pendant will arrive on a standard 18 inch waxed linen cord, but upgrades are available should you desire!
