if sanded grout can scratch your onyx tiles, why not buy unsanded grout.
This is good advice. I used glass in my backsplash and unsanded grout. A Backsplash will never see an ounce of stress. All it does is sit there and look pretty, so the extra strength of sand in wider joints isn't going to make it stronger.
