✩Black Onyx Mythology and History✩
Black Onyx (a variety of Agate) is believed to discern truth, accept circumstances, and is a powerful emotional healer. Legend says that Agate improves memory and concentration, increases stamina and encourages honesty. Agate is said to be particularly beneficial to people born under the sign of Gemini as it helps them to remain calm and focused. Agate gemstones are one of the oldest stones recorded in history. Agate is known as a stone of protection, protecting one from nightmares, stress and fatigue. Since biblical times, agates have been worn and used in jewellery to protect against imminent storms. They were highly valued as talismans and amulet throughout ancient times.

These earring are suitable to wear though standard/regular piercings.
*Due to the integral design of the bead and ear finding a direct swap for non-pierced finding is not available.

*If you like this design I could make you something very similar with a non-pierced/clip-on finding.
*If you wear gauged tunnels I can make a custom pair for you using a hoop or large kidney-wire style ear-wire.
(the non-pierced or tunnel hanger findings would be Rose Gold plated onto Copper).
Please message me if you would like either non-pierced or tunnel hanger style and I can make a custom pair for you.
