A gemstone that is gaining momentum - White Onyx (Branca Onyx) - completely natural, untreated and with a beautiful translucent milky colour. I suspended it from a bail set with a trilogy of natural, white Diamonds.
Onyx is in the same family as Agate. Natural, untreated forms of these stones are rare because they are usually dyed, heat or acid treated to enhance their colour. The exceptional milky translucency is also rare because both Onyx and Agate are famous for being banded. Recently, a translucent White Onyx variety was discovered in Brazil - Branca Onyx.
This style is available in shorter and longer pendant drops. This listing is for the longer version.
