About Black Silk Stone
Black Silk Stone is an Onyx Marble with a beautiful, silky-smooth surface and satin finish. It features black banding that wraps around a grey-to-white background.
The Romans were experts at glyptography (the carving of layered stones to reveal different colors) and crafted beautiful seals from Onyx (white layer over black base) and Sardonyx (white layer over reddish-brown base). The patterns were cut in negative relief. Engravings with a negative picture are called intaglios and those with raised image are cameos.
NOTE: Silk Stone can be safely cleaned with cool water and a mild soap. Wipe the surface with a soft cloth.
