Onyx is cryptocrystalline, a sedimentary rock formed of silica minerals, quartz and moganite. Which is a technical way of saying it is stunningly beautiful. Often translucent with chaotic colored banding, onyx brings a stop-in-your-tracks beauty to interior decorative installations.
Onyx occurs naturally around the world, but primary quarries are in Turkey, Mexico and Arizona.
You name it. The striking colors of onyx are remarkably varied, from rich black to marble white and every color in between.
An interior stone, onyx has always been associated with decorations. Its transparency and multi-colored appearance can be highlighted even more with backlighting.
