Crystal Details: Comes from the greek Marmaros, marble meaning "crystalline rock", "shining stone", "brightness or glow." The marble onyx is a limestone composed of the mineral calcite and aragonite, not to be confused with chalcedony onyx. Banded, generally translucent and capable of being polished to a high gloss, this onyx originates in the dripstone deposits of limestone caverns where it forms stalactites, stalagmites, and other formations that can fill an entire cavern or void space. It is deposited by gentle, dripping water movement followed by evaporation between drops that deposits calcium carbonate from the water onto the for-mation, incrementally enlarging formations by thousandths of an inch or less per drop.
