As a material, natural stone has a lot of character since no two stones are alike. Elite Lava mosaic offers this unique character as it consists of small, rough structured natural stone pieces and is available in two versions: gold and silver. Not all tiles are covered with the metal but are rather covered with a silver or golden shimmer. This together transforms every wall into a vivid and shimmery surface.
Elite Lava can only be used for indoor purposes and the size of the available mesh is 30x 30 x 1,5 cm.
Mosaics such as Elite Lava are made of small, flat, roughly square, pieces of stone or glass of different colours, known as tesserae; but some, especially floor mosaics, may also be made of small rounded pieces of stone, and called “pebble mosaics.” Mosaic has a long history, starting in Mesopotamia in the 3rd millennium BC. Pebble mosaics were made in Tiryns in Mycenean Greece while mosaics with patterns and pictures became widespread in classical times, both in Ancient Greece and Ancient Rome.
Mosaics such as Elite Lava are used to break the monotony of a sole type of wall covering and are also used as decorative borders or to frame different zones such as the shower or a basin.
