If you are fond of using exotic stones for home decoration, consider using onyx stones at your home. Onyx is a translucent calcite crystal. It is a fragile stone and hence onyx tiles and onyx slabs which come in blocks are only used in homes. Since not many manufacturers make onyx tigers products, these onyx slabs are in high demand. As always, luxurious feel to your home can be obtained by decorating your home with rare stones. You can use onyx tiles for your floors and bathrooms and onyx tops in your kitchen can be absolutely spectacular.
