Onyx is formed by layered deposit of hydrated calcium carbonate from warm springs, or as stalagmites in caves. It is found world wide, including the United States, but the onyx found in Pakistan is especially prized for its high quality and beautiful coloring. The word "ONYX" is derived from the greek word meaning fingernail, because of its translucency. This semi-precious stone is carved into various shapes and then polished by expert professionals in Pakistan. Green onyx is also known as Banded Onyx because it is formed in layers. The color ranges from deep to light green with red, brown and white bands or veins. Jet black is softer and more brittle than granite, it is considered a luxury material prized for its distinctive look.
