It’s a kind of marble that dates back millions of years. For millennia, onyx has been used to adorn religious buildings and fend off evil spirits. Some people believe it brings them comfort, relieves tension, and calms their hearts.
Onyx marble is often found in limestone caves. The original limestone is dissolved and redeposited by water. Quartz crystals have been glued together to form transparent stone layers. This stone can be used as a mineral gem as well. Onyx, like limestone, is a harder stone and can be used in areas where it will not be abused on a regular basis. Since it transmits light, onyx marble is often used as vanity tops, fireplace surrounds, bar tops, walls, and small islands. Wall cladding, light-duty residential floors, sinks, and tables are some of the other applications. Vases, urns, lamps, wine goblets, sinks, and bowls are all examples of onyx novelty pieces.
