Details

Evoking the mystery of the nativity star, Sierra Family artisans transform natural white onyx into a set of six ornaments. The Bible tells how a wonderful star appeared in the East to guide the Magi to Bethlehem, where the Christ child was born. Thus the star is a beautiful symbol of Christmas.

White onyx is not a solid color. Instead, it has natural veins that make each stone absolutely unique.
