White onyx is a type of calcite mineral that features bands or layers of various shades of white. It is formed through the crystallization of minerals in water, often in limestone caves. Its distinctive appearance makes it highly sought after for use in countertops, flooring, wall cladding, and other decorative purposes.

While it may look delicate and fragile due to its translucent appearance, white onyx is actually quite durable when properly cared for. It ranks around 6-7 on the Mohs scale of hardness (with diamonds ranking at 10), making it more resistant to scratches than other types of natural stone like marble or limestone. However, it should still be treated with care as it can chip or crack under excessive force.

Thanks to its versatile nature and durability, white onyx can be used in various applications including countertops, backsplashes, flooring tiles, wall cladding, fireplace surrounds, and even furniture pieces like tabletops or side tables. Its translucent properties also make it a popular choice for lighting fixtures such as lamps or pendant lights.

White onyx can be found all over the world but some of the most notable sources include Iran (formerly Persia), Mexico's Baja California region, India and the western coast of South America. It is often quarried in large blocks and then cut into slabs or tiles for use in construction and design projects.

To maintain the beauty of white onyx, it is important to clean it regularly with a mild soap and water solution. Avoid using harsh chemical cleaners or acidic substances that can damage the surface of the stone. Additionally, be mindful of placing hot items directly on the surface as this can cause thermal shock and potentially crack the stone.

Unlike other types of stone such as granite or marble, white onyx does not necessarily need to be sealed. However, sealing can help protect against staining and etching from acidic substances. To determine if your white onyx needs sealing, you can perform a simple water test by sprinkling a few drops of water onto the surface. If the water beads up and does not penetrate the stone after a few minutes, then it does not need sealing. If the water absorbs into the stone quickly, then it may benefit from being sealed.

No, we do not recommend using bleach or vinegar on white onyx. These substances are highly acidic and can cause etching and discolouration of the stone. If you do encounter a stain, it is best to consult with a professional stone cleaner who has experience with white onyx.

It is not recommended to place hot items directly onto white onyx as extreme temperature changes can cause cracking or discolouration. Use trivets or heat-resistant pads to protect the surface from heat damage.

Yes, if not handled with care. White onyx tends to develop small fissures and veins within its structure which can make it more susceptible to cracking under pressure or stress. These fissures are part of what gives white onyx its unique appearance but also means that extra care must be taken when handling this type of stone.

This type of damage can occur due to several factors, including impact from heavy objects or pressure, thermal shock from extreme temperature changes, and even simply the natural wear and tear over time.
