Onyx is created when quartz crystals are formed in cold-water springs, forming translucent layers of marble. The result is an exquisite material that is characterized by warmth and incredible depth of color, usually yellow, brown, green, orange, and white. True onyx is nearly pure crystalline silica closely related to agate, a semi-precious stone. Onyx tiles are used for flooring and wall applications.
At first glance, one could be forgiven for confusing marble and onyx. Hold onyx up to the light, however, and the truth reveals itself in spectacular fashion: it’s the only stone on the planet that’s translucent. Onyx is laced with natural layers of amber and ivory, giving it a unique honeyed color that’s perfect for grand foyers, bathrooms, kitchens and even small, detailed projects.
A naturally translucent marble quartz stone with parallel layers of breathtaking luster, onyx marble exhibits a palette of smooth amber hues that’s simply captivating.

Honed onyx has a very fine, satin smooth finish with little or no gloss which is often referred to as a ‘matte’ finish. Colors of onyx flooring tile with a honed finish are not as vibrant as those with a polished finish.
Polished The finest and smoothest finish available, polished onyx floor tile surfaces have a high luster or glossy, glass-like sheen. Polished onyx tile colors are deeper and more vibrant than all other surface finishes.
Tumbled Characterized by rounded edges and an aged appearance, this finish is obtained by rotating pre-cut onyx flooring tile with gravel and bearings in a tumbler, mixer or other container.
