There’s a reason onyx is chosen for expensive jewelry: It’s a beautiful, unique stone that’s hard to replicate.
Onyx can come in many colors most notably black, brown, red, and yellow.
You can’t miss the unique look of onyx due to its swirls, colors, and variety of different looks. However, with its beautiful look, it is also a fragile stone and is rarely used on active surfaces. It can scratch and stain quite easily.
Onyx is a softer stone than other types, so you could potentially scratch it if cutting directly on the surface.
Onyx can chip with aggressive use.
Onyx countertops can react to various acids, so it’s important you keep wine, lemons, vinegar, fruit juice, and other acidic liquids off your onyx countertops.
