Golden Onyx Tiles are splendid examples of how Onyx marble can be used in a real world design plan. We can very briefly discuss below how this tile format differs from the gemstone Onyx.
Mineral.net says of the gemstone: “the most accepted gemstone definition describes a solid black Chalcedony, or a banded or layered black and white Chalcedony”. On the other hand, Brittanica.com tells us: “The so-called onyx marbles consist of concentric zones of calcite or aragonite deposited from cold-water solutions in caves and crevices and around the exits of springs. They are, in the strict sense, neither marble nor onyx”. So there is a bit of science on the gemstone vs. the tile format.
After the science, we think it’s quite clear that this material brings a certain unique appeal to a space. An appeal that is hard to characterize, but lies someone between earthy and elegant. Then, of course, that is our opinion. Thanks for reading.
