History & Origin

 

“The name “onyx” is derived from the Greek word “onux” meaning “claw” or “fingernail”, so-called for its resemblance with the translucence and color of a fingernail“ (Marble Institute of America, 2011). On top of this, the word marble is added to its name on account of its similar composition and visual appearance.

The use of this fascinating geological material goes at least as far as pre-conquest Mexico. There it was used by the indigenous people in the creation of masks and various handcrafts. Successively, after the Spanish’s arrival, they found a common interest in this rock and used it in the decoration of churches.
