Our LOTUS POOL Aqua Metallic Glass Tile Assortment features deep aquatic shades of royal blue, teal, emerald, and muddy brown, plus violet and mint. This 1-lb mix is a special 10-shade variation of our permanent 3/4-inch Metallic Glass Tile Assortment, which includes all 29 shades of the Morjo™ Metallic line.
Morjo™ Metallic glass tiles contain copper dust swirls and streaks for a permanent, UV-resistant sparkle. These tiles are hard and durable enough for outdoor installation, yet they quickly cut into halves, quarters and triangles with little force using a pair of mosaic glass cutters. The backs of the tiles are grooved for secure mounting.
For a compatible 12mm iridescent version, see Dragonfly.

Cutting Glass Tile
Though durable enough for outdoor mosaics, this tile cuts easily with minimal force using the mosaic glass cutters. Ordinary tile nippers are not recommended for any type of glass, as they will tend to crush the material rather than yield a precise cut.
Metallic Glass Tile in Mosaic Art
Even as an occasional accent, metallic glass tile will add sparkle, depth and luminosity to any mosaic project. Break up monochromatic color fields with their metallic equivalent, or sprinkle in pieces to add drama to your details.
