Basalt tiles are formed from the volcanic rock of some regions of China, the United States, Mexico, and Italy. Basalt is mostly gray, with light and dark hues.
With relatively high absorption rates, these tiles or slabs are functional and practical flooring material. We don\'t recommend using these tiles in submerged areas.
Basalt looks good in many textured finishes, such as flamed and sandblasted. These various textured finish surfaces are practical for demanding applications. Also, our tiles come in various shapes of mosaics. Such options include penny round mosaics, straight mosaics, and 2 x 2 mosaics.
When selecting basalt tiles, the most important factor to look out for is their clarity and uniformity. All high-quality basalt tiles are clear in color and selection, with no sizeable mineral deposits.
For fireplaces, tub decks, or backsplashes, our fabricator can provide longer slabs of basalt to give a uniform look.
