Onyx

Onyx is, simply put, mesmerizing. Onyx is a calcareous stone, formed by dissolving limestone and redeposited as a new kind of stone. In caves, drip water forms onyx as stalactites and stalagmites. It is a beautiful but brittle stone and should be carefully evaluated for its intended use. It can be back lit to give you a unique look that will be sure to impress. Onyx ranks about a 6.5 on the Mohs Hardness Scale. Its deep, rich tones suggest comfort and strength while its layering tells a story of the earth’s growth and its veins add an aura of life and vitality to any space.

* Natural stone, like nature, has its own distinct characteristics inherent to natural products.  Variations in color, pattern, texture and size are to be expected.  Final products are not always an exact match to samples and images, since they are quarried at different times from varying locations.
