Very nice Pearl Mosaic. I was hoping it would be a bit more white, but depending on the piece you get and the lighting it will be off white. The mosaic pieces are extremely thin and fragile. I expected thicker pieces for the price.
Hi Thomas, Thank you for taking time and leaving this review. These shell mosaics indeed very delicate, but that's what make them so beautiful. Our shell products have the thickness that is generally accepted and very common in tile industry. We hope your project will be beautifully completed and you'll be satisfied at the end. Thank you!

not all the sections line up correctly, had to use grout in between a few of the panels and doesn't look very good. I'm very disappointed , spent a lot of money to have to redo with another product. Not sure of a remedy at this time.
We are sorry for your experience. This mosaic is not easy to install due to its irregular shape, jointless design, and the thickness of shell. That is why it requires a very experienced installer and some extra work to install it. The surface must be perfectly flat prior to installation and it is better to use V-notched 1/8 or 3/16 trowel. Some minor gaps between sheets are normal for this product and normally grouting with white unsanded grout helps to hide some of them.
Amazing tiles. They look so pearly and white under sunlight, I used them on my bathroom walls next to the window, and I love the way it came out.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
My contractor tells me that I cannot use this tile on the shower walls because there are no grout lines, yet you say this can be used in the shower. Is there a mortar or some kind of sealer that goes over this tile? Is he right, that this cannot be water tight? If it can be can you explain how to install so it is water tight?
It can still be grouted with Laticrete unsanded grout which will fill some of the minor gaps in the mosaic. We say it can be used on a shower wall because usually on the walls water goes down on the surface of the tile instead of going behind the tile as it can happen in submerged areas like a shower pan. We had clients who used this mosaic on the shower wall and haven't heard any complaints however if your contractor is not comfortable installing it in that application maybe it is better to look for alternatives with grout joints. We can also make the same pattern for you with grout joints if you want.
Do you need special tools to cut thse?
Please check this information with your contractor. We recommend using King Diamond or Ridgid Diamond blades
