Onyx Slab


#1

I recently had a onyx cab cut and was told by the cutter that he
was in need of a 10 to 12 mm slabs of black onyx and was having
trouble getting them. His last source was from Germany and got
disconnected through an untimely death. Any one out there have a
source for these heavy slabs?? Also looking for green onyx.
Thanks Frank

Frank: Try New Era Gems of 14923 Rattlesnake Rd., Grass Valley,
CA 95945 ph.#1-800-752-2057. I’m sure they have anything you
could want.

Dear Frank, I use BC Onyx @aol.com. He treats all his own
onyx and will cut it to your specifications. His rock is
uniformly dyed and polishes readily.

Just taking the opportunity to ask if anyone knows a source for
BLUE onyx slab. I need a 15x20 slab to replace one lost from a
large finger-ring. I would appreciate any help with this.
Thank you J.Dule

Blue onyx could be hard to find. The process used to create it
is environmentally dangerous. I would try one of the German
stone manufactures or a company in the US that buys large
quantities of cabachons. Fire Mountain Gems and Griegers come
to mind.

Just as a reference, I just checked my Fire Mountain Gems
catalog (the 1999 Jewelry Maker’s Catalog), and according to it,
they don’t carry blue onyx. However, I suppose there is always
the possibility that they have some in their warehouse. You can
always call them and ask. 800-423-2319.

Hope it atleast helps a bit.
