Minerals, Omexco by Arte, MIN1209
This collection of Minerals from Arte exudes the luxury of natural tones. Much has been done in this collection with natural hues and materials that reflect nature. This ensures the luxurious and warm appearance of the wallpaper. The wallcovering collection “Minerals” of Omexco consists of mica and glassbeads. In the “Minerals” collection, different structures and variations of mica are combined: roughly cut mica, small mica, natural mica, mica mixed with recycled paper, mica embossed with metallic foil…
The material and the structure of both mica and glassbeads allow sparkling shades of ice crystal, starry night, onyx, jade, aluminium, amethyst, mother-of-pearl, charoite, bronze, topaz, lapiz lazuli, copper, anthracite… A few items of non-woven wallcovering with glassbeads enhance the lustre of the mica references.
Mica or “vermiculite” is a mineral formed out of a chemical reaction between quartz and granite. Exposed to extreme heat, the mineral expands into worm-like pieces 2000 or even 3000 % of their original size, in a spectrum of brilliant colours. The characteristics of this mineral have been known in Japan for 6 centuries. Mica is also known as “strange stone”, “breathing stone” or “miracle stone”. After the mica has been heat-expanded, it is crushed into small pieces and stuck on a non-woven backing. Finally, the surface is coloured.
The wallpaper is a real eye-catcher in the room and provides both a natural as a whole luxurious look. Due to the different color tones used in this collection, this wallpaper is easy to combine with other elements in the room.
