This stone has unique look with wide range of colors. Onyx is made from naturally occurring bands of chalcedony, often in alternating colors. It is cryptocrystalline, consisting of fine intergrowths of the silica minerals, quartz and moganite, and its bands are parallel to one another, compared to the more chaotic banding that often occurs in agates. Since onyx has a translucent quality, designers often backlight surfaces or walls to showcase the veining and make the space glow. It also can be used for fireplace surround, small island or bar top. This exotic natural stone is about luxury, it has exceptional and distinctive beauty. It’s important to know that this stone is delicate and needs to be sealed.
