If you want to adorn your space with an exquisite natural stone that can turn any ordinary area into a coveted, polished retreat, nothing parallels the exclusivity of our exquisite Sky Blue Onyx.
Hailing from the remote locations of Iran, Argentina, and Turkey, this high-end natural stone is a game-changer for interior designs of residential projects, luxurious restaurants, and boutique hotels.
Onyx Blue Sky Formation
Onyx is essentially calcium carbonate from the calcite and aragonite species. It comes in various colours, from white or cream to green, red, orange, or blue.
Onyx forms through the activity of thermal waters, either in channels or internal conduits within rocks or when they reach the surface and spill to create travertine.
Sky Blue Onyx is Aesthetically Superior
The Sky Blue Onyx, unlike any other stone, is an undisputed champion for establishing a stunning visual statement.
The stone boasts a mesmerising sky-blue hue infused with subtle patterns of white and grey. The overall effect is spectacular, lending a serene, aquatic feel to any space it occupies.
Its translucence, a rare trait in the stone world, adds a magical element to the Blue Onyx. It’s like having an ocean in your home or workspace, emanating soft, glowing light when illuminated from behind.
Versatile and Chic Combinations
The natural aesthetics of Blue Onyx make it a seamless match for various interior styles.
For those seeking a pure, serene aesthetic, you can’t go wrong pairing Blue Onyx with white or light grey elements. Picture clean white walls accentuated with this mesmerising stone, creating an ambience of effortless sophistication.
Golden wooden accents, such as floorboards or furniture, will also complement the pastel tones of this variety of Blue Onyx without overpowering the space.
For the bold hearts who crave a daring yet elegant interior, consider matching this stone with darker hues. Bold navy or rich charcoal can create a striking contrast, spotlighting Onyx’s ethereal beauty. Combine it with sleek, black appliances in a kitchen to establish a dramatic yet welcoming space.
How about joining your Sky Blue Onyx with metallic accents? Copper, bronze or gold can add a layer of abundant warmth to the cool blue tones of the stone, creating a comfortably contemporary environment. And don’t forget texture—an essential ingredient for a refreshing living space.
The gloss of a Sky Blue Onyx wall combined with matte finishes and natural textures, such as woven textiles or raw timber, can introduce an enticing tactile dynamic to your design.
And finally, the green thumbs among you will be thrilled to hear that Sky Blue Onyx worktops or kitchen splashbacks harmonise beautifully with plant life.
The serene stone creates a stunning backdrop to vibrant greens, allowing your indoor flora to thrive visually within your interior aesthetic.
