Marble and Onyx are remarkably similar, but they have some noticeable differences. Marble is a metamorphic rock, while onyx is a form of chalcedony quartzite. Marble often looks like it’s made up of many smaller stones, while the surface of onyx can be dotted with white lines or inclusions. However, the most significant difference between these two stones is their color patterns: marble patterns show in veins and swirls, while the stripes in onyx are usually straight or wavy but not vein-like. Marble needs to be polished to obtain its mirror-like polish. Onyx shines on its own without manufactured polishing.
