Our Iridescent Assortment is a rainbow mix of 3/4-inch iridized glass tiles for use in art and coverings. It is sold loose by the pound (approximately 145+ pieces). Note that only the faces of the tiles are iridized. The backs are plain colored glass with embossed ridges and grooves to help adhesives grip it tightly. The 3/4-inch (20mm) width and ~1/8-inch thickness are standard dimensions, so you can mix and match these with many other brands of tile. All our glass tiles can be cut easily with the Mosaic Glass Cutter we sell.
Note that the iridescence is MILD and not so glossy that the underlying color is obscured. This is a definite plus because glass that is heavily iridized tends to look the same no matter what color the glass is underneath. These tiles show a significant amount of the underlying color and can be used to render polychromatic images.
