These tile are what I consider rich colors of that era that will compliment gunstock stain on cherry wood cabinets. Hope they look as good as the picturesMary Helen C on Jul 31, 2016What size are the individual pieces of mountain run glass?BEST ANSWER: They are 1" squares. I installed this several months ago and it looks great in kitchen and baths. There are a fair amount of tiles that are chipped and have to be cut out and replaced with a new one and I chose light grout but wish I'd have gone with a darker grout, but they are beautiful tiles and the price was amazing - couldn't put up those fake sticky tiles for that low of a price. Be careful what grout you get (unsanded) and be sure to get an adhesive for glass and these are great and go up very easy. Probably too much info - sorry.Is this kind of mosaic tile ok/good for lining a swimming pool (trim, on the top most portion of the pool normally tiled). I'm asking specifically and overall about what mosaic glass tile will be appropriate (certain thickness? certain type of properties or how it comes? certain glazes/treatments are inappropriate due to chlorine or salt water impacting it over time(I assume this is likely for iridescent tiles, but I'd appreciate some general guidance:)BEST ANSWER: This tile will suit you just fine for a swimming pool. Just be sure to install a thinset mortar bed that won't affect the color of the tile. Bostik Glass Mate, which we offer on our website, is perfect for such applications. We offer general installation instructions on the product page, however it is always recommended to have a professional contractor or installer perform any installations. With that said, the finish, thickness, and general size of this tile are perfect for any pool applications.
Tile must be installed over a suitable substrate to insure a proper installation. Glass tile should be installed over a clean, sound, and flat surface, free of contaminates including curing compounds. Substrate should be free of cracks. If used in a wet area you must waterproof. See manufacturer’s recommendation on a membrane for crack and water protection that is compatible with the setting material you are using. Glass is reflective therefore any inconsistencies in the substrate will result in a poor installation. For pools and fountains we recommend installing a mortar bed according to TCA P601-98. EXPANSION AND CONTROL JOINTS PER TCA EJ171-05 Expansion joints should be installed at all “changes in plane” in the tile work and where tile abuts restraining surfaces, therefore silicone caulking sealant must be installed in all corner joints in place of grout.INSTALLATION
- To avoid affecting the color of glass tile, White modified thin-set such as Bostik Glass Mate is highly is recommended for all installations.
- Apply as much adhesive as can be covered within 10-15 minutes.
- Grout joint should be a minimum of 1/16” and not butt set.
- The trowel size you can use is a 9" Trowel - 1/16" square notch.
- You would need to use Non-Sanded Grout.
- Grout joints should be packed full and free of voids and pits.
- Clean excess grout as the work progresses before it has hardens completely.
- Acids should never be used for cleaning grout haze.
- Use a damp sponge for the final cleaning and to smooth out the grout joints.

The recommended cutting method is to use a wet saw with a diamond blade that is specifically for cutting glass. Edges can be sanded smooth after cutting.
