What is onyx?

Onyx is a stone which historically has been used in art and jewelry. In the Second Dynasty in Egypt, they used onyx to make bowls and other pottery items. Onyx is also mentioned in the Bible a few times, including one of the stones foreseen in the foundation of the city of Heaven in the book of Revelation.

On a more grounded note, onyx is a stone Midwest Rock Tops is familiar with. Are you thinking of redoing your kitchen or bathroom countertops? Onyx is an option! One of the most interesting features is the iridescent quality you’ll find in many types of the rock. With the right lighting, it seems to glow. This rock is pretty versatile, making up countertops, backsplashes, and wall and flooring applications. Many times, people use onyx in applications that can be lit from behind, enhancing the glow-like quality of the stone.

Does your kitchen or bathroom make you feel like there’s something missing? Maybe the glow of onyx is just what it needs!
