As can be seen from the images below onyx demonstrates a high degree of variability. Natural onyx is also one of the most beautiful natural materials the World has to offer. It is however simply not possible to select an onyx material from a small sample due to the inherent variation that onyx displays (click here).
Endless variations in colour, pattern and translucency are what makes onyx such a highly desirable material choice. However, natural variations in shades, tone and depth, plus the physical properties and availability of the material – makes sampling extremely difficult.
Before requesting samples it is important to understand the following:
What to expect
The images below showcase a 2400 x 1200 slab, overlaid with a sample-sized grid. The full image is stunning, but clearly each individual area is entirely different to the next – which means a sample will never do justice to the entire piece and in fact could be considered misleading. It is therefore of fundamental importance that we guide you through the process.
The availability of stone slabs is continually changing – which means that what is available today may not be next week. We work with natural materials obtained from multiple countries around the world.
Our stunning Sheerstone panels are created from 2cm thick slabs of onyx, marble or granite resulting in a 5mm veneer of real natural stone laminated to either glass or Perspex depending on the panel size and application. This process requires a minimum of 12 square metres (120 square feet) of slab to be conducted successfully therefore we are unable to accept orders for smaller quantities.
Prices vary according to stone selection, backing material, quantity and panel size (subject to minimum requirements). Once we have an indication of these factors we can offer preliminary pricing and you can then decide what happens next.
Note: Our process requires a minimum of six square metres.
