The empty glass vessel at the end of the black cord is that space of contemplation....a space filled with meaning by the wearer. Out of the void came the planets and the universe. Eight tiny spheres fall darkly, softly shining: all silver...tarnishing slowly...but for one. That one is black onyx...a tiny ball representing that globe in deep space where we all live. This black onyx bead will be the wearer’s Touchstone.

Just as the thimble is a symbol for protection, it has long been said that black stones also offer protection. Onxy itself defends against is known as a healing stone; used to guide people through visions, meditation and dreams...and help align the body, spirt and mind. This is a protective, guiding vessel.

Become totally empty
Quiet the restlessness of the mind
Only then will you witness everything unfolding from emptiness
