I wanted a special piece for an accent on my kitchen wall. I have never seen a tile as beautiful as this one. Feeling very fortunate to have found it at the tile bar.

I think it is beautiful and also will go with most any color in a room. It is perfect for my glamorous master bathroom project. It will be set as a medallion on a wall surrounded by Carrera marble and Swarovski crystals.

What are the exact dimensions of each piece of tile?
A shopper on Oct 26, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Each sheet covers approximately .85 Sq Ft
Does it come in flower form? or square?
A shopper on Jan 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi, this tile comes in a flower form mosaic.
How many "flowers" are in one sheet? Only one? Like one person said 6 looks like a nice cluster, but I'm assuming the edges will not be square. Does anyone have pictures of using this as a focal point in a backsplash? I love it, but I can't spend $700 on a "focal point." Thanks!
Sarah L on Jul 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: There is one full flower in one sheet.
How big is 1sheet?
Catt S on Jun 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 12 x 10.4 inches. 0.87 sqft.
Is it white or cream or gray in color?
A shopper on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The tile is a super white, a regular white, and the pearl color depends on the light in the environment.
How big is each "unit"? I put in the amount of sqft I need (80sqft) and it recommended 105 units. Is a sheet ($125.95) a unit? Thx
Lindsay C on Oct 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 1 sheet is 1 unit. Each sheet covers an area of .85sqft.
Would like to do a cluster of these flowers on my shower wall. It looks like 6 would make a nice circular design, do you have coordinating tiles that would fill in the rest of the design? What would you recommend.
Terena L on Nov 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: We used it as a center backsplash in our kitchen and glass subway tiles for surrounding area in a taupe/brown color. I would suggest glass tiles in a brown or lavender shade to bring out the colors in the mother of pearl.
Thinking about using it as a focal point in my kitchen, but my back splash field tile is crema marfil. Would this blend, or can I get the piece with crema added?
Susan P on Sep 18, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The two should go quite beautifully together. With that said, you should order a sample and see how the two colors look when near each other prior to making the full order.
Hi, can I install it on shower walls and seal it with sealant so that the moisture cannot get in ? And how long will it take for moisture to damage the tile if we go ahead with our project -G
A shopper on Aug 29, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You can, but I highly recommend that you proceed with caution. It's very difficult to predict how things will turn out, as well as how long it will take for effects to occur.
Is this tile ok to use for shower wall with daily water exposure?
Kimberly on Aug 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not recommend it due to the pearl and marble. Water and moisture can affect the wear, sheen, and color of natural stone over time. Proceed with caution.
I was planning on using this for the centerpiece over a 36in cooktop. Would this match with the "VICTORIA PEARL WHITE THASSOS MARBLE AND PEARL SHELL TILE" and if so what would a good dimension be. I am thinking of something similar to the square displayed in the picture but wider to match the cooktop. Something like 36" by ??" Where cutting it would look even on all sides.
A shopper on Jul 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This would coordinate well with the Victoria Pearl White Thassos and Pearl Shell tile. With that said, you might want to consult with an interior designer or contractor in order to find out what dimensions you should use in your specific backsplash.
Does this coordinate with SERENE WHITE BRICKS SEAMLESS PEARL SHELL TILE and SIMPLE WHITE 3X6 CRYSTALLIZED GLASS "THASSOS" TILE?
Maria V on Jun 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: They all coordinate quite beautifully. With that said, it is always recommended to order samples and see the tiles together in person in the environment and setting they're meant to be applied.
I do not see the "button" to order a sample. Could you please advise on how to order a sample? Thank you.
Karen B on Jan 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi there, this problem has been fixed. The sample button is now available.
Can this be used for the bathroom floor?
Ioana H on Nov 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes, on a residential low traffic floor that would be fine.
Installation

STONE INSTALLATION

These instructions are meant to be a guide for most installations, under normal conditions. Please follow best practice instructions found in the Tile Council of North America (TCNA) 09300 Handbook for specific installation types.

MATERIAL INSPECTION

Due to the natural of the material no two pieces of natural stone are exactly alike. Natural stones are products of nature; therefore, variations in color, pattern, texture, and veining will occur. Verify all products before installation for any damage or defects such as chipped edges, broken pieces. No adjustment will be made after installation.

*Always use appropriate personal protective safety equipment when handling, drilling, cutting or grinding glass tile such as (but not limited to) eye, ear and hand protection.

SUBSTRATE

Before you start tiling, make sure that whatever surface the tiles are being installed to will be strong and structurally sound. Cement board, concrete or drywall is best, as these surfaces can handle the moisture of the tiling process. Plywood should be avoided, since the wood will warp with the added moisture and it will also be less waterproof, even after tiling.

INSTALLATION MATERIAL

Thin-Set
When setting tiles we recommend the use of polymer or latex modified thin set or medium bed mortar compliant with ANSI standard A118.4 and is recommended for use with marble tile.

Tools
3/16” or 1/4” square notch trowel should be used when installing our glass material and ridges should be smoothed down with the flat side of the trowel prior to fixing the tiles in the mortar bed.

Cutting
Use a wet-saw with a new, continuous rim diamond blade specifically designed for cutting marble. Do not use “turbo” or other notched blades designed for use with porcelain or ceramic as the teeth can cause a coarse cut, resulting in a heavily chipped edge.

Cut edges and corners will be sharp. Always be sure to smooth the cut edges manually with 200-grit wet/dry sandpaper.

Drilling
If possible, drill holes before installing tile. Drilling from both sides can ensure a cleaner finish if the hole will be visible after installation. Using a new diamond coring bit (for large holes) or spade bit (for small holes) with a diamond tip made for glass drilling will give the best results. Lubricating the bit and tile surface with a continuous spray of oil/water mix will prolong the life of bits and provide a better-finished edge. When possible, the use of a jig will ensure precise placement of holes to be drilled.

When drilling holes for anchoring bolts, plumbing or any other dissimilar material always ensure a minimum of 1/8” clearance around the item is provided to avoid cracking due to disparate expansion and contraction rates or stress transfer.

GROUTING

We recommend applying grout release prior to grouting, suitable for the respective stone and interior or exterior use, to the tile to facilitate cleaning and for protection against staining from contrasting color grouts. Grout joints should be packed full and free of all voids and pits. Excess grout should be cleaned from the stone surface as the work progresses, before the grout hardens. Do not use acids to clean off excess grout. Prior to grouting, test an area to make sure the stone surface will not scratch.

SEALING

After the stone is installed, and grouted, seal the stone with an appropriate high quality breathable stone sealer, to minimize water absorption, efflorescence, and potential staining. If necessary, a color enhancer may be applied to bring out the true color of the stone at any time after grouting. Follow sealer manufacturer’s installation instructions. Reseal tile when the stone gets darker or as needed.

CARE AND MAINTENANCE

For normal care and maintenance of stone tiles, clean stone surfaces with a few drops of neutral cleaner, stone soap, or a mild liquid dishwashing detergent and warm water. Use a clean soft cloth for best results. Too much cleaner or soap may leave a film and cause streaks. Do not use products that contain lemon, vinegar, or other acids on marble or limestone. Rinse the surface thoroughly after washing with the soap solution and dry with a soft cloth. Do not use any abrasive cleaners.
