White Onyx is a dazzling natural stone of translucent white, holding delicate patterns. It is an exquisite material available for architecture and interior design. It brings light and life into your home.
White Onyx is a stone that has been used in jewelry and decorative applications since ancient times. It was highly prized by the Egyptians, who believed that wearing it would bring them luck and strength. In fact, it’s said that Cleopatra wore White Onyx in her hair as part of her mourning rites after the death of Caesarion, Caesar’s son with Cleopatra VII of Egypt.
The Greeks also valued White Onyx—in fact, it became their national emblem. The name comes from the Greek word “onyx,” meaning “unbreakable.” This name was given to this stone because it is so hard that nothing will break off from it once you’ve placed something on top of it; however, don’t get too close to an onyx object because its sharp edges can cut through clothing!
