miracle stone


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...

A few items of non-woven wallcovering with glass beads 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'.
