Mother of pearl mosaic tiles
Mother of pearl shell mosaic
Mother of pearl tiles add a luminous glow wherever they are installed, making them the perfect way to add a luxurious finish to your home. The iridescent sheen of shell is a beautiful addition to any interior project and has the added benefit of enhancing the natural light in any room thanks to its reflective quality.
Mother-of-pearl tiles often act like mirrors. While they do not reflect like a mirror, the shimmering veneer of the tile acts much like a mirror in that it magnifies the space. The light that shimmers on this tile gives the room a sense of expansion. This feature is very beneficial in bathrooms, which are generally the smallest rooms in the house. Enlarge your bathroom with a backsplash made of this shimmering, bright tile. Even though the most popular pearl tile is white, there is also a beautiful selection of black tile. This darker version still offers the same shimmer and shine, but with a more subdued setting.

Questions about mother of pearl mosaic tiles
Mother-of-pearl tiles, also known as shell tiles, or shell mosaic tiles, are made by carefully cleaning shells with a combination of hydrochloric acid and bleach until a smooth surface is achieved.
For cleaning, it is important to use a mild detergent. We recommend mild soap and water. Since most mother-of-pearl tiles are made of calcium carbonate, it is important that you do not leave cleaning agents on the tiles for extended periods of time. Clean gradually and avoid anything with abrasive properties, such as scouring pads and sandpaper.
