During Obzinky commemorations, people wear their most colorful clothes. These folk costumes vary from region to region, but for the most part women wear gathered skirts and blouses with lace and embroidered trim, aprons, shawls, jackets, and special bonnets or scarves.
Men's costumes consist of embroidered white shirts, with full sleeves gathered at the wrists, colorful vests, and white pants, or dark woolen pants and caps. Both men and women wear boots. Dyes made from indigo and other plants are sometimes used to color the clothing.
Onyx is a cryptocrystalline form of quartz. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color (save some shades, such as purple or blue). Commonly, specimens of onyx available contain bands of colors of white, tan, and brown.
It is usually cut as a cabochon, or into beads, and is also used for intaglios and cameos, where the bands make the image contrast with the ground. Some onyx is natural but much is produced by the staining of agate.
