Onyx Is The New Marble And Here’s Why
By on in Inspiration
Onyx comes in varying degrees of patterns and a rainbow of stunning colors. Many of the most popular onyx colors — like jade, mint, light pink and warm tan — work well with today’s on-trend colors.
An interesting quality of onyx is its lack of opacity. Onyx is more translucent than marble, making it a great stone for lighting or for creative purposes like a backlit wall or surface that casts a glow and enhances the stone’s patterns.

Warm-Toned Onyx vs. Marble
If you find marble a little cold in hue, the classic earthy shades of onyx may be a refreshing option, especially when paired with crisp white or greys.
Neutral Onyx Colors
If you’re looking to add texture without the warm tones, you’ll find onyx patterns featuring black, cool beige and pale greys.
