Adding an Element of Class


Also known as Nacre, Mother of Pearl, is an organic - inorganic composite material produced by pearl oysters, freshwater pearl mussels, and to a lesser extent, abalone as an inner shell lining. It is also what makes up the outer coating of pearls. It is very strong, resilient and iridescent.

The main application for Mother of Pearl is in resin terrazzo systems. Mother of Pearl is very decorative and, when ground, it gives a pearly effect. It is not an inexpensive product but is really something special when part of a terrazzo formulation.

Mother of Pearl adds an element of class.

Because it is natural it contains natural variations of texture and colour that cannot be achieved with glass or stone. This gives system designers and architects the synthetic advantages of a resin terrazzo but with that natural element.
