Make a statement with the finest onyx in Calgary for your kitchen, bathroom or other countertops throughout your home. Onyx slab colours and patterns have a great deal of variability because of the unique way this stone naturally forms. Onyx is formed out of precipitate, water dripping and then evaporating, leaving behind a small amount of calcium carbonate and other minerals. This process is repeated which gives onyx its stunning, layered look compared to most other natural stones. Emphasize this translucent stone’s dramatic patterns and beautiful colours with backlighting to make any onyx countertop, onyx backsplash or onyx feature wall stand out as something very special.

THE ADVANTAGE OF ONYX COUNTERS & ONYX BACKSPLASHES
Choose a coloured or white onyx countertop to get a one-of-a-kind stone in your home. In ancient times, onyx was used to make art, pottery and even windows before the advent of glass. Today, onyx is one of the few solid countertop and backsplash materials that can be backlit because of its translucent nature. Backlighting an onyx counter or backsplash creates an incredibly beautiful and luxurious look that appeals to many homeowners and excites designers for its potential use as a stunning focal point within a home. Onyx slabs come in a variety of colours for you to choose from including black and white to blue, green and gold. Because of its versatility and elegance, many homeowners opt for an onyx backsplash.
INVESTING IN AN ONYX COUNTERTOP OR ONYX BACKSPLASH
Since it is a rare stone, onyx slabs can be difficult to process. Onyx countertops are generally one of the more expensive natural stone options, but many people feel the additional investment for an onyx counter or backsplash is worth it for special applications such as a backlit wall feature or countertop feature. This creates a stunning piece of natural art that is also functional within the home. It is important to note that onyx is a very soft stone and onyx kitchen countertops, in particular, are more sensitive to acids compared to some other natural stones. That makes protecting your onyx counters with proper protection products highly important.
