Natural mica flakes are derived from a group of sheet silicate minerals, called mica, which include muscovite, phlogopite, biotite, clintonite and others. The mica family of minerals contain highly perfect basil cleavage.
Through a highly technical manufacturing process, the distinctive hexagonal atom arrangement of the mica minerals is separated into sheetlike pieces, separated into natural color groups and broken down into
standardized flakes sizes. These unique flakes provide a natural metallic luster that cannot be achieved with other engineered minerals.
