Beautiful Onyx Counter-Tops
Onyx is a natural stone formed from limestone that is disturbed then reformed. It is known for its attractive bands, which are created when the rock is reformed. The most common form of onyx is black onyx, where the patterns are black, white, or a mix. Onyx can be used to dramatic effect, especially since the stone is translucent, meaning that light can be shone through it. While striking, onyx is soft and etches easily; if used as a countertop, it must be professionally sealed. It can also be used as a backsplash to complement other types of stone. In recent years, this material has become quite popular in high-end homes and businesses. Maintenance R311 should be used in day-to-day operations to keep the surface highly reflective and free from staining. However, this is not enough – onyx must be cared for by professionals if longevity is to be achieved, please contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding this delicate material.
