Black Onyx And Jasper Bead Necklace - FJ.4408
Price: $400.00
This unusual necklace combines black onyx, a gem prized since early Antiquity, with jasper in mottled earth tones. The result is at once dramatic and sophisticated, a jewel suitable for both day and evening wear. Shiny onyx has been popular in both the old and new worlds for centuries. In exodus, the gem is mentioned as fitting prominently into the breastplate of the high priest. Its lustrous polished surface makes it especially sought after for modern jewelry. As an amulet, the chief virtue of onyx is that it attracts and absorbs negative humors from the body of the wearer, causing relief from both physical pain and mental anxiety. Black onyx serves as a buffer from pain and a defensive wall against evil and illness. Jasper, an opaque member of the quartz family, is found in a variety of colors. Because of its rich hues and the fact that it polishes to a high luster, jasper has been used in jewelry throughout history. The Egyptians preferred it for scarabs, while the classical world carved whole vessels from it, believing that its benevolent properties were passed on through food and drink. In exodus, jasper is one of the twelve stones set into the golden breastplate of the high priest. The therapeutic powers of jasper are enormous, but vary according to the color of the stone. Mankind is fortunate that in addition to its helpful nature, jasper is extremely becoming to wear. Medium: Onyx-Jasper
