On the Mohs Hardness Scale, Onyx is a relatively soft natural stone and therefore has the potential to scratch and stain. It is also an expensive material, and may require frequent maintenance for its scratched and stained surface. It is not recommended especially in places with heavy human traffic. It is more suitable to be used in wall coverings, decorative ornaments, columns, balustrade, bathroom counters, etc.
