Plug A Day – Sardonyx

It is not often that you find orange gemstone, even more rare when it is used for body jewellery. Today’s piece is made from Sardonyx, a member of the onyx family of gemstones but itself not un-similar to many agates. Almost all of the pieces we have are banded, orange with white stripes, some have other colours in the mix and the thickness of the banding does vary but they are all lovely pieces.

On both ears I have 3 sets of stretched holes, from the inside out these are 0G (8mm), 2G (6mm) and 4G (5mm). When I wear wood, stone, glass or other organics in my 0G (8mm) first hole I tend to wear simple and plain silicone tunnels in the other 2 which you can see in the picture below.
