Most of the modern pattern mosaics you see are made of the dazzling stone.
In fact, mosaics and stone are a good match of media.s are designed step by step as pictures, and then reproduced in stone. This can be very demanding work, requiring tiny pieces of stone to produce color effects and shades. The pieces of the mosaic are painstakingly laid, one at a time.
Complex mosaics may require thousands of pieces of stone. In some cases even small gems are used to produce highlights, echoing classical techniques. Abstract or pattern mosaics may use much larger stones, creating mosaic features throughout the stonework. The most popular commercial designs are symmetrical features, using templates to create a series of designs in the stone tiling.
