Some cleaning tips for Onyx Marble


AOnyx Marble is a unique natural stone that originates from dripstone deposits of limestone caves. When water drips from icicles and spikes within these caves and evaporates a compound called calcium carbonate is port behind. This causes the stone’s multi-colored swirls, veins, and patterns that are matchless to onyx. Hence, onyx is classifying as a chemical sedimentary stone and can at times contain fossils and shells.
