Onyx Stone Gallery
When looking to add a touch of class to your kitchen or bathroom, onyx countertops stand as an optimal solution. For a natural stone, onyx is beautiful, rare, and unique, and in many Houston and Texas homes, homeowners use onyx as an opulent alternative to marble and granite.
At King’s Granite and Marble, we love the dramatic appeal of onyx and recommend it to anyone looking for an exclusive style. Scroll through the gallery below to check out some of the different onyx colors we offer, or you can contact us by calling (713) 992-4326.
