Onyx, like Travertine, is the result of water dissolving existing limestone and re-depositing it as a new kind of stone, sometimes called sinter. In limestone caves, onyx is formed by drip water, as stalagmites and stalactites. Onyx is a very soft stone, and somewhat brittle, and needs to be installed where it will not be subject to hard wear. This beautiful stone is characterized by its translucence, and can actually be backlit for striking, dramatic effects.
Here are some of our most popular Onyx Stone Samples. We have many more samples and strongly recommend you visit our showroom so you can view the actual stones.
Please note these are natural products and they vary in color and pattern.
