Green onyx is one of the materials capable of giving a real touch of class to any environment, as it has unique characteristics.
It is a widely used stone, belonging to the category of calcareous onyx, used for construction since the times of the ancient Greeks and Romans who built myths and legends on the origin of onyx.
Green onyx: origins and characteristics
Green onyx is extracted in India and Pakistan and can be light, medium or dark green in colour: the green areas, reminiscent of dense vegetation, are crossed by irregular red, brown and white veins.
The feature that gives this material its uniqueness is that the green areas are particularly transparent to light.
The natural transparency means that green onyx is used to create furnishing elements with backlit effects that create harmonious plays of light and that combine perfectly with both the classic and modern style of the various environments. For this reason, not only floors, walls and stairs are made of this material, but also design objects such as tables, counters, lamps or niches.
In addition to brightness, one of the main characteristics of green onyx is resistance, although it is still a delicate material, the maintenance of which requires attention and a few small precautions.
