ONYX

onyx countertopsThis exotic natural stone is about luxury and glamour. Although onyx is a form of quartz, it is a softer, more fragile material. Great care is needed to maintain the natural beauty of this stone. Onyx marble is most often used as fireplace surrounds, bar tops, walls or small islands because it transmits light and is best placed where it won't be used or abused on a day-to-day basis.

Onyx is often confused with marble, yet it is a significantly different type of rock. Onyx is a sedimentary rock, formed as stalactites and stalagmites in cave interiors. This formation method results in the crypto crystalline construction of rock fabric, and it is the size an uniformity of these crystals that contribute to the classic translucent property of most onyx varieties. While vulnerable to chemical and abrasive attack, the decorative appeal of onyx is perhaps unsurpassed by any other material.
