A great alternative to granite, marble, and other more popular stone surfaces, onyx provides a sleek and modern look to any workspace.
Onyx is a form of marble, comprised mostly of calcite. Like other marbles, onyx is much softer than granite and is likely to stain or etch. Unlike other marbles, onyx is translucent and can be lit from behind to showcase its beauty.
Onyx is an extremely fragile stone. It can be marked easily by knives, pots, cleaning elements and acids. Therefore, onyx should be used in low-traffic areas or low-use areas. Bathroom vanity tops and some bar tops that do not get a lot of use can be complemented by the colors and veins of onyx.
