Onxy cleaning, polishing, sealing, repair, restoration, and maintenance
A Delicate, Exotic Stone
Onyx, a form of marble, is a truly stunning stone known for its incredibly rich colors and luminosity, but etching, wear patterns, scratches, dullness and other problems can really take a toll on the appearance of onyx. If this is true of your onyx, don’t replace it. Have it restored to like new.

Are your onyx surfaces too dull or too shiny? If you have a new onyx installation with some areas that look more glossy than others – let us even out the finish for you. We can deliver a beautifully restored gloss, semi-gloss or matte finish for all your onyx surfaces.
Lippage Removal? Onyx Grinding
When tiles are set unevenly, this is called lippage. Aside from detracting from the beauty of your installation, lippage can create a trip and fall hazard. You need not replace the entire floor, because our expert technicians can grind the stone to a uniform, flat surface. The honed or polished end result will look as good or better than when the floor was first installed.
Onyx Honing & Polishing
A calcium-based stone, onyx reacts to acids found in lemon, wine, cleaners, and other substances, which can result in etch marks on the stone’s surface. Our expert technicians can hone and polish your onyx furniture tops, walls, floors and other surfaces to eliminate etching, wear patterns, scratches, dullness and other problems. We can achieve a soft matte finish that is warm, inviting, and velvety smooth or polish your onyx using the appropriate diamonds or polishing powders to provide a beautiful, glass-like polish.
Once your surfaces are restored to their original beauty, we may recommend that your onyx be sealed to enhance its stain resistance. Most stones (unless resined) are naturally porous. If left unsealed, there’s always a risk of spilling a colored or reactive liquid, resulting in stone discoloration. While most stains can be removed, onyx stain removal can be time consuming, expensive and often frustrating. Depending on the finish and the environment it is in, sealing your onyx surfaces might be required as a preventative measure against stain damage.
