What is Onyx?

The formation of onyx begins in the large, vast limestone caverns, where the cavern’s dripstone deposits form stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations, filling the otherwise void space.

Stalactites and stalagmites are developed over time as the soft droplets of water are combined with the evaporation process creating a more dense calcium carbonate. The buildup of calcium carbonate incrementally forms a chemical sedimentary stone, known as onyx.
