why choose onyx?
Onyx is a sedimentary rock formed by the precipitation of calcium carbonate in very still underground settings. It is characteristically translucent with variegated veins of differing dimensions, generally having shades of brown, that give this stone a multi-coloured appearance.
Onyx has always been associated with decorations given its transparent and multi-colour appearance; unique aesthetic effects can be achieved when onyx is backlit with LED lighting. Onyx is essentially used in interiors.

Examples of buildings in Onyx:
