Onyx has been used in pre-Hispanic Mexico to create religious objects and jewellery; I like to use “Mexican Onyx” because of its ancient use and the particular green nuances that makes it so unique. For me, the juxtaposition of onyx and resin is the contrast between precious nature and modern man creation.
