"Minerals" is a collection by Brian Yates consisting of mica and glass beads.
Mica or "vermiculite" is a mineral formed out of a chemical reaction between quartz and granite. Extreme heat causes the minerals to expand up to 3000% of their original size, in a spectrum of brilliant colours. It is then crushed into small pieces and stuck on non woven backing and then the surface is coloured.
For 6 centuries, the characterists of this mineral have been known in Japan. Mica is also knnown as: miracle stone, strange stone or breathing stone.
Different structures and variations of mica are combined in the "Minerals" collection: roughly cut mica, small mica, natural mica, mica mixed with recycled paper, mica embossed with metallic foil. Glass beads enhance the lustre of some of the non woven mica reference wallcoverings.
The glassbeads and mica material and structures allow sparkling shades of: ice crystal , starry night, onyx, jade, aluminium, amethyst, mother of pearl, charoite, bronze, topaz, lapiz lazuii, copper and anthracite.

Ordering a sample of wallpaper or fabric is always recommended as the colour shown on your computer screen may slightly vary from the physical product itself. When scanning our wallpaper or fabric we always try to ensure that the colour matches as closely as possible, however every computer monitor has different settings for brightness, contrast etc and as a result may appear to be a lighter or darker shade than it actually is. The cost of a sample is refunded if you later decide you would like to purchase the wallpaper or fabric.
