Natural stone wall tiles
Natural Stone - Natural stone was created over thousands of years and therefore it is destined to last forever. The stone blocks are cut to 2 or 3 centimetres thick and the perfectly flat side is ideal for being adhered quickly and precisely. Moreover, the stone weighs less and and less space is required to install it. The stones can be placed in the pleasant so-called “random mix paving” because they come in different shapes and sizes. They can also be laid in a more regular way, the so-called “stretcher pattern” . The whole range is available in rectangular shapes which gives a perfectly aligned finish. The perimeter edges of each single rectangular stone are hand trimmed with a chisel in order to give the stones a very pleasant appearance.
FILITE is a natural rock of metamorphic origin composed mainly of Mica, Quartz, Chlorite and Feldspar. Formed about 550 million years ago from extraordinary catastrophic events, it is an evolution of slate and as such can be sectioned in specified planes, but it is much more compact, hard and resistant. As in the best slates, it has very low water absorption values.
