Onyx is a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color. Pure black onyx is familiar, and perhaps the most famous variety. It has a long history of use for hardstone carving and jewelry, where it is usually cut as a cabochon, or into beads, and is also used for intaglio or cameo engraved gems.
Onyx was known to the ancient Greeks and Romans. Carved onyx art objects were recovered at the Knossos archaeological site. Onyx was used in Egypt as early as the Second Dynasty to make bowls, perfume vessels and other items.
BLACK is associated with power, elegance, formality, and mystery. Black denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color (black tie, black Mercedes).

Daniel Swarovski (1862 – 1956) was born in northern Bohemia (now the Czech Republic).
His father was a glass cutter who owned a small glass factory.
It was here that a young Daniel served an apprenticeship, becoming skilled in the art of glass-cutting.
The crystal products are fashioned by Swarovski Company now located in Austria.
