ONYXOnyx 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. Onyx is most often used in areas with less traffic and is commonly back-lit for drama as it is translucent in nature. Onyx is a strikingly dramatic stone that comes in pastel colors and swirling patterns. Onyx is a calcareous stone, formed by dissolving limestone and re-deposited as a new kind of stone. In caves, drip water forms onyx as stalactites and stalagmites. It is a soft, brittle stone and should be carefully evaluated for its intended use.
Onyx slabs almost always have a fiberglass mesh material on the back to hold the stone together. This should be an indicator of just how fragile the stone is.
