This is a very useable string of gem stones featuring Onyx and variable color of Agate Beads. There is a lobster claw closure but I think that mostly you will put this necklace over your hair. You can sure wear it doubled and maybe knotted. It will really look good with your silver. These beads are stamped with Indian signs . This I can mail for 8 dollars Beautiful and long lovely necklace. It will come in a velvet bag and pretty gift box. For you from the High Plains of Kansas.
