The DRAGONFLY Dark Iridescent 12mm Assortment is an aquatic themed mix of Morjo™ Recycled 12mm Iridescent Glass Mosaic Tile. It features deep shades of blue, purple, teal, green, and brown with silvery grey and spring green. This 1-lb assortment should have about 320+ loose tiles. The tiles have a glossy finish, and solid opaque color throughout.
These wonderful tiles cut cleanly into tiny pieces with minimal waste, and so they are an ideal material for micro mosaic artwork. They are hard and durable and UV-resistant and can be used for the exteriors of commercial buildings. The fusing process for making these tiles from powdered recycled glass is referred to as “warm glass” or “enamel glass” or “pate de verre.” Mounting grids are available.

One pound (~320 tiles) covers 91 square inches or 0.6 square feet assuming a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch. You need about 508 tiles (1.6 pounds) to cover one square foot assuming a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch. You need about 645 tiles (2 pounds) for a square foot assuming no grout gap. Use our tile estimator to calculate how much you need for your grouted project.
These tiles have a NOMINAL thickness of 1/8 inch (4mm), which is the same as most of our glass tile, but these run slightly thicker by a hair.
Cutting Morjo 12mm Glass Mosaic Tile
The MORJO brand cuts like butter into tiny pieces using a pair of Mosaic Glass Cutters so you can make tiny cubes without a lot slivers or cutting waste. This makes it ideal for mini mosaics or rendering small details in larger work.
Use in Mosaic Art
Morjo Recycled Glass Mosaic Tile is rich in hue and tint, which makes it a professional rendering material suitable for portraiture and murals. The 12mm (~1/2 inch) size is sufficiently large for conventional applications, while the material also cuts very cleanly into small pieces for micro mosaic artwork.
