Broken, Reworked and Salvaged Mosaic Tile Assortment is a colorful 1-lb assortment of mosaic material. It varies by batch but usually includes marble cubes and pieces, glass tile, porcelain tile, iridescent and metallic tile, translucent glass gems, minis, imitation gold, millefiori, toy marbles, beads, etc. It is a great way to get a sample of different products to see what you enjoy working with.

The Salvage Assortment includes many tiles that are whole and clean. It also includes broken tile, occasional sharp pieces and tiles that still have mesh or adhesive stuck to the back. Please do not order the assortment if that is a problem.

Each 1-pound scoop varies, but should include fragments and pieces of most types of tile we sell, plus odd samples from manufacturers.

This mix contains a range of thicknesses, but is easily sorted into two piles: flat tile with a nominal thickness of 1/8″ and thicker chunkier pieces that are more easily pressed into wet concrete than glued to a flat surface. The broken mosaic assortment is great for finding odd accents and special pieces.


One pound covers about 2/3 of one square foot, but pieces are of different thicknesses. This assortment should be pressed into wet thinset (or sorted by thickness).

Cutting Salvaged Mosaic Tile
