Overview

Design Elements

Victoria Hexagon Pearl Thassos Marble and Pearl Glass Tile

Each piece of this stone and pearl tile fits into the next like a perfect puzzle. Its stunning design and unique pattern of honeycomb will bring warmth and a natural ambience to your home. The mesh backing not only simplifies installation, it also allows the tiles to be separated which adds to their design flexibility. Natural stones are products of nature therefore variations in color, pattern, texture and veining will occur.

 

It is not recommended to be installed in a pool or anywhere the tile will be submerged in water.

Shaken or Stirred?

During World War II, reduction of consumption activists argued that soldiers should not be permitted to drink alcohol beverages. However, General George C. Marshall, Chief of Staff of the U.S. Army, insisted that such prohibition would be 'harmful to the men in the service."

is this mosaic okay to use in a shower as an accent?
A shopper on Jan 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It can be used as an accent as there is nothing wrong with water splashing on it; however if it will be constantly underwater then the pearl in this tile can begin to darken over time. We strongly recommend sealing the tile to preserve its color.
Is there a straight edge sheet?
Marvilyn A on Jun 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not believe there is a straight edge sheet- I remember our tile Guy having to create a straight edge
Can this be used as tile around a fireplace?
Kim D on Nov 1, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I used it in a tub surround, not sure about fireplace application. If there's any chance of soot/smoke buildup any mosaic would be difficult, let alone a white marble one.

The other condition to consider is heat. The mother-of-pearl mosaic pieces are a thin shell piece glued to a porous tile. Adhesion is very good but I'd buy 1 sample sheet of tile and test it under your conditions.

If it works in your application you won't be disappointed. It is magnificent installed and had just the right amount of light reflection.
Can this tile be used for bathroom floor? Is it durable enough?
A shopper on Feb 9, 2015
BEST ANSWER: the marble parts are certainly durable enough, but I would think the mother of pearl would get scratched.
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

Mother of Pearl and Pearl Shell tiles must be regularly cleaned and maintained to extend the life and beauty of the tile. The tiles can be cleaned with a neutral mild detergent. Keep surfaces clean from abrasive dirt and do not use abrasive cleaners, powders, scouring pads, steel wool or sandpaper. Do not let soap, bleach or other cleaning solutions set on the surface. Seashells consist primarily of Calcium Carbonate. They will react with acid including vinegar, acidic foods and carbonated beverages.
