Classic Marble Company (CMC) has announced the launch of its latest collection of Onyx from its natural stones range. From fringed to veined and even crystalline patterns, the collection is a set of rare gemstones sourced from various parts of the globe.
Titled Onice Fantastico, Bianco Onyx, Jade Onyx Veined, and Honey Crystal Onyx, each has a distinct design characteristic and can be installed in counter tops, vanity tops, wall highlighters or even bar tables. By the day, the stones exhibit beauty as the surface shimmers with the natural light falling on it and by evening, it could be backlit for light to pass through its translucent area, creating an illusion of colours and patterns.
Translucent backlighting is a creative support tool that many designers use to achieve artistic, indoor environments. Because of the stone’s rich variety of colours and patterns and its opaque characteristic, it allows to be experimented and installed in niche areas or otherwise. With it being intrinsically delicate and its ability to be decked up with lighting, Onyx assumes the place of being a princess of the stone world.
Onyx can be installed on vanities and other non-food service countertops. Being fragile Onyx must be handled with care and caution during installation. Onyx is a delicate, sensitive gemstone hence cleaning should be done with nonacidic detergents.
