The legend goes like this- one day Venus was asleep when a mischievous cupid cut her fingernails and flew away leaving the finger clips scattered on the ground. Latter by the design of the god, these fingernails were transformed into stone that came to be known to the world as onyx. The name draws its origin from the word, onyx which in Greek language means fingernails. In latter course of history, this stone became famous in the hands of Romans, who crafted beautiful seals out of onyx.The item "VINTAGE STERLING SILVER TAXCO MEXICO PIN BROOCH SIGNED TC-114 BLACK ONYX" is in sale since Monday, April 23, 2018.
