Know Your Stone-Is black spinel the same as black onyx?
Most of the time black onyx is used for more of a center focal stone in a larger piece and black spinel is used for beading on a smaller scale. Black Onyx is a banded variety of the oxide mineral called chalcedony
Both are highly durable stones which makes them great options for any jewelry piece and black gems will always be incredibly striking.
All in all, black onyx’s more hard, mineral, opaque properties make it viable for larger stone and bead features and also give it less sparkle than the black spinel that is so similar to other gemstones and can be cut and molded into smaller shapes for more small, delicate beading designs.
