Onyx Sink

Onyx is a semi-precious gemstone of quartz variety with an extremely fine crystal formation. Most often recognized as the deep, black stone used in jewelry, onyx is actually found in a wide variety of colors and shades the world over. Onyx is prized for its translucency, alternating light and dark striations and unique color combinations. This wonderful stone is often associated with friendship, and as a bringer of joy and tranquility. Because of its age, and how it was formed, Onyx creates a bond between man and earth. It gives us a connection to the Ancients.

No matter your style preference or color choice, there is an onyx sink which can transform your kitchen or bath décor.

Each of our onyx sinks is an original sculpture, carved by a dedicated and skilled artisan from a single block of onyx. The professional stone sculptors in our studios hand pick the material for each of their vessels and then, set about transforming the stone into a functional work of art for your home. The talents of our artisans and the natural, individual characters of the onyx make each vessel a precious, one-of-a-kind creation.
