That's a pretty one . Do you know if the oynx came from oynx springs in the panimint mountian near Death Valley. I went there a couple of years ago and collected 800 lbs and split it with a friend. We wanted to go back but the mine owner didn't want to do anouther fee dig right now. It is real cool rock easy to work and takes a great polish. Don't leave it in the sun it will turn white. I have a big piece setting by the 24" saw to cut for a sphere. Should get one over 6"
I think that I have made six spheres form 3" to 6" from that onyx
Here is a labradorite I just finished and an agate from a rock that I stole from a friends rock collection. I may give if back to her
