Easy Inlay Mother of Pearl Flake (1oz)EIMOPF
Mother of Pearl is a versatile, natural mineral used to create many types of inlay. It can be used as is, or dyed to emulate a variety of luxurious gem stones such as sapphire blue, ruby red, jade green and more. You can also mix it into our other inlay materials to add a shimmering translucent chatoyance effect. These grains add iridescent, colourful shimmer to any inlay design; it comes from the inner layer of the shell of some oysters and abalones.
On the Mohs Hardness Scale, mother of pearl has a hardness of 2.5 and is easily sanded using silicon carbide (carborundum) or aluminium oxide (corundum) sandpaper, which has a hardness of 9.0. It is durable and provides an excellent surface to polish and/or finish.
Note that these products are made from nature: there may be variations in colour and minor impurities which add to the overall natural aesthetic.
