How can you tell if black onyx is real?

Use a lighter to light the stone for 10 seconds before dropping it in water. If it's a real onyx, the stone will remain unharmed, but if it's fake it will be melted. In order to determine whether or not the Onyx gem you're buying is of a good quality, you can just check the surface of the gem.
