Nicole of Enzy Design shows how onyx can create a dramatic impact in interiors.

After recently stumbling across several examples of agate incorporated into interior decor (such as this beautiful lamp from Arteriors Home) . . . 

I was reminded of onyx, a very similar type of quartz that can create a dramatic impact in interiors, especially in bathrooms.

Here are just a few examples:

And the best part is that onyx is a somewhat translucent material, which means it can be backlit, as shown in this bathroom:
