Onyx is prized for its unique colors and veining but is best known for its translucent properties, allowing for stunning effects when backlit.
This layered stone made of Calcite produces exquisite formations with a bold, expansive color palate. These formations that onyx creates are often in “cloud-like” shapes or bold striations, depending on if the onyx slab material has been Cross-Cut or Vein-Cut. The decorative appeal of Onyx is truly unsurpassed by any other material. The backlighting ability that is achieved through the semi-translucency that all Onyx possesses, creates a statement for any commercial or residential project.
Onyx is ideal for interior applications only, including commercial and residential bar applications, bathroom vanities, wall cladding, and decorative elements. Onyx is a softer, more porous stone, and therefore is vulnerable to both chemical and abrasion exposure, similar to Marble.
