With its translucent appearance, wide array of colours and rich patterns to choose from, onyx is a natural choice for those wanting a dramatic impact. Onyx is a natural stone that makes its presence felt in the luxury design area. It is a stone that is rarely found and it is becoming renowned for its extreme elegance, glamour and vividness.
Onyx is considered a semi-precious stone and is equal to stones such as lapis lazuli and alabaster. The stone is a favourite in luxury design materials.
Onyx is a form of chalcedony, part of the quartz group. Like the other stones in the chalcedony family, Onyx has a smooth, waxy lustre and can be found in a wide range of colours, often layered. Onyx is formed in caves as stalactites and stalagmites drip to form this precious stone.
Onyx is a great alternative to granite, marble, and other more popular stone surfaces; providing a sleek and modern look to any workspace.
Onyx countertops are a rarity as they bring a unique appearance with strikingly dramatic appeal. Not often placed in a horizontal orientation such as a countertop, onyx countertops are a unique and premium surface.
With its exclusive style, onyx generally comes in swirling and pastel colour patterns.
