✩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.

✩Variations/findings✩
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.

Jewellery: Care Instructions

Jewellery should be the last thing you put on the first thing you take off.
Always avoid getting hair products, perfume or chemicals (chemicals can include household cleaning products, some foods such as Lemons or vinegar)
General Advice:
Any metal be-it Sterling Silver, base metals or plated alloys can become dull or tarnished. As a general rule don't get it wet, if you do, dry and polish with a soft cloth. If it goes dull or tarnished, a gentle polish with a non-abrasive Silver cloth will bring it's lustre back. Gems or beads can be wiped with a slightly damp cloth to restore their original lustre.
Certain precious or semi-precious stone may require special care, I will include the information in the items full description or care leaflet.
