Glass Symbol Tiles by MORJO™ are sold loose in bags of 8.8 ounces (approximately 90+ pieces), which covers slightly under 1/3 of a square foot with a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch. Each bag contains a mix of HEART, MOON, STAR, and BUTTERFLY tiles.
These tiles have a glossy finish, and the glass has solid color throughout (and not just on the tops or bottoms.) These tiles are opaque, hard, durable, and UV-resistant. Note that the color palette is different from 12mm and 8mm Morjo because these are made in a different factory.

Each 1/2-pound bag of about 90+ tiles covers almost 1/3 of a square foot assuming a standard grout gap of 1/16 inch. Use our tile estimator to calculate how much you need for your grouted project.
Note that dry indoor mosaics do not have to be grouted (and thus you can simply mount the tiles tightly together), but outdoor and wet mosaics must have grout to prevent water from penetrating behind the tiles. The best way to ensure that the gaps between the tiles is to leave a 1/16-inch gap instead of pressing them tightly together, and this point seems counterintuitive to some people. Consider this: you can never mount them so closely together that water can’t penetrate it, but you can accidentally put them so close that grout doesn’t get adequately pressed into the crack during the grouting process.
Cutting Morjo™ Glass Symbol Tiles
The MORJO brand cuts like butter into tiny pieces using a pair of Mosaic Glass Cutters.
