Mother of Pearl inlay pieces for cutting your own inlay shapes and designs. Our high quality mother of pearl inlay blanks are all precisely prepared so they have square corners and are completely flat. This precision in cutting them makes them ideal for creating tiled mosaics as well as for cutting inlay designs.
Mother of pearl, also called nacre, is a white shell material which exhibits iridescence and a 3D effect in its pattern - when polished the grain gives a stunning rippling, undulating effect which changes with the angle of the light.
Mother of pearl inlay material can be cut, with extreme care, using a fine jeweller's saw. It is a brittle natural material and should be well supported when cutting. Use sensible vacuum extraction to remove the dust caused by cutting, and wear a dust mask when working with mother of pearl.

Great product - as described on the R&F site, it's somewhat translucent and picks up light from different angles, resulting in an iridescent sparkle. Anxious to use it!

These are nice blanks well polished on one side and ready to cut for inlay. Good consistent thickness and properly square too.
Nice looking product
