Blue Onyx, aka Argentine Aquamarine Onyx Fountains

The rarest stone that we use is an Aquamarine Onyx from Argentina. Blue is rarely seen in onyx, and this source has chaotic red and orange oxidized veining. Clearer and whiter bands of chalcedony stack layers in silica and quartz inter growths. Have I lost you yet? All that is to say that we find the rarest stones around without pricing you out. Big chunks of this are near impossible to come by in the US, and the blue onyx from Asia is a whole lot duller than what we get. The largest pieces we can get reach just over 3 foot and we are negotiating getting bigger pieces from South America. It has to be flown, not floated up here adding to the care with which it is transported.

 

 Our fountains are created to be in all climates and seasons to accent your lifestyle. During colder months when seeing frozen temperatures, no maintenance is required other than shutting off the pump. The rare stones are beautiful in any season and will continue to be for generations to come. The Aquamarine Onyx is unparalleled in its beauty, and no one but The Rock Star Gallery can produce this type of artwork.

Love stone as much as we do? Let us know how you would like to see the Argentine Aquamarine onyx introduced in your space, or other stones that turn you on.
