Onyx is defined on wikipedia as: “a banded variety of chalcedony. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color (save some shades, such as purple or blue). Commonly, specimens of onyx contain bands of black and/or white.”

Onyx make for a beautiful choice when it comes to counter tops and even showers. The range in colors that come from this unique gemstone are nothing short of amazing. Onyx not only has great color features it also allows light to pass through it fairly easily. Because of this unique attribute it is a popular choice for a bar and bathroom countertop.

Onyx can be found in quarries all over the world. Some of the more concentrated areas are Brazil, Pakistan, Shri Lanka, Uruguay, Madagascar and even Hawaii.
