Black Mother of Pearl Tiles

Luméa shells are handcrafted into functional tiles to share the ocean’s beauty and natural luminescence through architecture, and interior design. Luméa Black Mother of Pearl Tiles are made using either handcrafted shell shapes or our shell veneer and come with a range of different backing options to best suit your end use. Choose from Listello, Solid Shell Panel and Mosaic forms.




Luméa Listello Tiles are designed for use as a decorative feature tile popular as a border or insert. They are composed of Luméa veneers glued to a ceramic backing and sealed with a protective coating. The Black Mother of Pearl Listello Tiles shows off the unique and iridescent gun metal coloured veneer.

Solid Shell

Solid Shell

Formed using handcrafted pieces of solid shell, pieced together in a variety of eye-catching designs and polished to an elegant finish. Luméa Solid Shell Panels have a standard size of 300 x 300 mm, or can be custom made in panel sizes up to 2400 x 1200 mm with a backing of either alloy honeycomb, siliceous calcium board or MDF.



Luméa Mosaic Tiles are hand cut square shell pieces laid out on poly fabric backing ready for installation. Once grouted into place shell mosaics offer a soft natural feel to wet areas and wall features. For the Mosaic pieces, choose from two sizes, a small 15 x 15 mm square or a larger 25 x 25 mm square.
