Just think that even Pliny, in ancient Rome, bought the green onyx at a high price, which is more difficult to find. In short, it is a more valuable quality than the classic black one.
In ancient Greece all the colors of Chalcedony were called “Onyx”: from white to dark brown to black. It was the Romans who later used this name only for black and dark brown chalcedony gems.
Like Agate, Green Onyx is also a striated gem. In ancient Rome it was used for glyptic, that is the art of carving, where, thanks to the different layers of color, the relief part, normally lighter, clearly differentiated from the darker one, giving rise to wonderful carvings. With this technique the Romans produced cameos with images of people or famous scenes.
The red-brown variety with white bands was called “Sardonyx”. In ancient Rome it was highly valued as a seal, as it did not stick to wax.
Few people know that Green Onyx is a compact, fibrous variety of quartz, with flat, parallel bands of contrasting colors. The natural veins from millimeter to centimeter, ranging from brown to ocher, give this stone a colorful and diaphanous appearance.
Elegant and valuable, it has a remarkable resistance and is easy to clean thanks to its surface capable of limiting the absorption of dirt and humidity.
