Onyx is an amazing quartz stone that comes in a wide range of colors and makes for beautiful interiors. Onyx is a suitable alternative to marble and has its advantages and, of course, disadvantages.
Because onyx is more expensive than marble, it is a soft and fragile stone that is prone to staining. It is also rare, making it a purely decorative material, which we recommend using in low-traffic areas and surfaces and for display purposes only, otherwise stone requires a lot of maintenance.
Shades aside, onyx is a very beautiful stone with amazing patterns. Being much lighter than marble, it allows light to pass through and is translucent. Therefore, backlighting works wonders on onyx walls and countertops, creating both a stunning visual impact and subdued ambient light.
