I have seen many online Calvin Begay listings claiming the black is jade or onyx, every piece we have bought from Calvin over the years the black material is Jet from near Acoma, New Mexico 
This jet take an excellent polish and does resemble the harder materials, but under a microscope the jet shows grain and cell structure from its origins as wood turned by mother nature into jet, which is a harder close relative of Coal; it can be easily scratched or etched with a steel tool. Jet is used my many Native American artists
For size reference we usually include US. coins or currency. A Dime is approx. 17.5 MM or 11/16" A penny is just under 19 MM approx. ¾”" A Quarter is approx. 24 MM or 15/16"
A Silver Dollar is approx. 37.5 mm in diameter (Just under 1 ½ “) A half dollar is just over 30 mm or just under 1 ¼ A Nickel is 21 mm
