Home » Onyx

Onyx is one of the newest and exciting options for natural stone because a lot of Onyx slabs are similar in beauty to marble, but even more durable in many cases. Onyx slabs are an increasingly popular option for many home applications including Onyx countertops, backsplashes and more, because they are available in many beautiful colours, textures and patterns. Typically, Onyx is a more expensive natural stone, however many find it is worth the investment for high-use applications, such as a Onyx counter in the kitchen or bathroom, over the long term.

Onyx can be divided in to two categories: hard and soft. Hard Onyx is the most durable and has a similar durability to Granite. It won’t scratch, stain, and is not sensitive to acid. Soft Onyx is in between marble and granite in terms of durability. It is generally more durable than marble, but still has some calcium carbonate and therefore can be sensitive to acid etching (though usually not quite as much as marble). Both are great options for any application such as Onyx countertops, a Onyx backsplash or wall feature.
