Malachite is a copper based mineral named for its resemblance to the verdant leaves of the mallow plant.  Black onyx is chalcedony quartz that has been treated to create its rich black color.  These two gems were often paired in the 1950s and 1960s to create dramatic, stylish cufflinks.

These cufflinks were created by Harvey Avedon,  a maker of fine cufflinks, pocket lighters and other gentlemen's accessories during the 1930s through the 1960s.  The Avedon workshops were located on the Westside of New York City and the firm's creations were retailed at Tiffany's and other fine jewelers of the day.
