Onyx is a rare natural stone that has the ability to provide a very unique and awe-inspiring appeal. Onyx is a calcareous stone, formed by dissolving limestone redeposited as a new kind of stone. Commonly found in caves, drip water forms onyx as stalactites and stalagmites creating bands of chalcedony in alternating colors, ranging from bands of white and/or black to almost every color. Many design projects will backlight the stone to take advantage of its strikingly dramatic and translucent nature. Onyx is a soft, brittle stone and should be carefully evaluated for its intended use.
