Usually the onyx is organized in translucent banded horizons with different colors depending on variable amounts of impurities like iron oxides. It is frequently yellow-brown due to the presence of these iron oxides, but can be also found in white, light to dark yellow, honey, amber, red, or light to dark green varieties. Due to the translucency of onyx, light will be transmitted through it even if not in a backlit application. Onyx is a hot trend in decorating. Modern interior design with onyx celebrates the natural beauty of these beautiful, optimistic, noble and warm stone featuring mysterious glow and fabulous curvy patterns. Onyx lighting fixtures, bathroom sinks, onyx wall panels, kitchen countertops, onyx flooring ideas and wall tiles offer spectacular ideas for creating a unique interior design and add to decor a touch of chic and style. Decorative wall panels made with onyx are thin and relatively light, perfect for any interior design ideas blending this beautiful natural stone with LED lights and adding a stunning look to home furnishings, accents, and distinct architectural elements. Onyx looks incredible with wood, concrete, steel, and glass, creating functional, spectacular and ultra modern interiors.
The name “onyx” is derived from the Greek word “onux” meaning “claw” or “fingernail”, so called for its resemblance with the translucence and color of a fingernail. In ancient Egypt, onyx (also known as Egyptian alabaster) was highly appreciated for its colorful translucency. It was used to make small perfume bottles, unguent vases, canopic jars and various other sacred and sepulchral objects. Generally translucent and capable of being polished to a high gloss, this onyx is originated in the dripstone deposits of limestone caverns. It is deposited by gentle, dripping water movement followed by evaporation between drops that deposits calcium carbonate from the water onto the formation, incrementally enlarging formations by thousandths of an inch or less per drop. How amazing!
For those who want to go with dark, what about Virginia Mist? Nice!

Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs.

Travertine colors feature warm earthy tones, and include soft ivories and creams, vibrant shades of golden honey, silvery greens, reds, and deep mocha browns.
