Black Onyx Boulder
Central Arizona Quarry
This rock is ideal for water features in swimming pools, waterfalls, or general waterscapes. This stone is superior to onyx from Mexico because it is very hard but ironically that makes it much easier for drilling and cutting since it won't fracture. So it can be easily drilled for fountain and or lighting features.
Black Onyx is an inviting mixture blend of black, silver and brown tones with white marble veins that worm their way through these warm colors in the rock and boulders. The surfaces of black onyx rock and boulders range from smooth to jagged and rough to the touch.
This wall rock and boulders are shipped throughout Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, Utah, Texas, and beyond into the rest of the USA, Canada, and even into the Bahamas.
These boulders can be pre-ordered with holes drilled through them for the installation of water or electrical features. Each drilled hole is $75.00
This is an American-produced onyx (normally we would not parse the differences between American and Mexican stone since we strongly advocate stone imports from Mexico, as the alternative is more stone from Communist China and India and that does not help our countries at all) and this material is much more solid and easier for masons to work with than Mexican onyx. It is also one of the few materials that are cheaper than stone from Mexico. Mexican onyx boulders for the Western USA are more costly, harder to get on a regular basis, and not as well quarried.
