The Trend of Elegant Onyx

Updated:2012-11-22 17:12:52

Onyx is a calcareous stone, formed by dissolving limestone and redeposited as a new kind of stone. It is known for its attractive bands, which are created when the rock is reformed. The most common form of onyx is black onyx, where the patterns are black, white, or a mix.

Onyx can be used to dramatic effect, especially since the stone is translucent, meaning that light can be shone through it. While striking, onyx is soft and etches easily; if used as a counter top, it must be professionally sealed. Onyx countertops are quite rare. They have a unique and awesome look but you really need to understand where and how onyx is best used as a countertop material. Seldom is the stone used in a horizontal orientation as a countertop.

Meanwhile, onyx stone can also be used as a backsplash to compliment other types of stone. In recent years, this material has become quite popular in high-end homes and businesses. Maintenance should be used in day-to-day operations to keep the surface highly reflective and free from staining. However this is not enough - onyx must be cared for by professionals if longevity is to be achieved, if you have any questions or concerns regarding this delicate material, just feel free to login our website ( www.stonebtb.com ).
