Onyx is the New Marble

Onyx Slab

Onyx is a type of marble, a metamorphic Stone that has many of the same properties as marble. The difference is the stunning patterns and veining. Onyx is also translucent, meaning it can be seen through if held to the light or back-lit and extremely variable in colors and pattern. 

Onyx is a great option for designing a small space with a dramatic feature.
Backlit Onyx is often used at counters, backsplashes, tub fronts and walls.
Black Onyx can be more dramatic than other colors of Onyx both in jewelry and slab forms.

Onyx is first mentioned in the Bible: Genesis 2:12 The gold of that land is good; aromatic resin and onyx are also there. Then again in Exodus where the Onyx is set in the breastplate of the priest of Israel.

Onyx as a symbol: In ancient India tales refer to Onyx as a protector of evil. As well as a protector of relationships and love between two people.

Consider Onyx in your next project to add a dramatic effect to any space.
