The standard stone medallion thickness is 3/8". It can be made in other thickness, such as 3/4" for hardwood floor installations. The stones have no grout lines and are polished and sealed. Czar Floors stone medallions can also be specially treated to create a "non-slip", tumbled surface for an additional charge. Stone medallions can be installed in either floor or walls, and can be used as back-splashes in kitchens or as tabletops.
Czar Floors medallions are true stone medallions. It's important to understand the difference between mosaic, tile medallions and stone waterjet medallions to appreciate the advantages of Czar Floors products.
Waterjet stone medallion are made by Czar Floors by cutting natural stone slabs with a waterjet, assembled as tight as possible on a solid backer. Stones are polished and sealed and there are no gaps or grout between individual pieces. You don't have to worry about cleaning the grout or matching grouts in color. The availability of computerized waterjet equipment allows us to cut stone to incredibly close tolerances. The example below illustrate the precise placement of inlay elements.
Czar Floors stone medallions use a sturdy aluminum backer. This "space" material is light and strong, allowing for easy handling and shipping. The same noncorrosive aluminum is used in avionics. The back side of the medallion is rough sanded to permit better adhesion to the subfloor. Thinset or commercial adhesive can be used.
The example photo below shows how a waterjet marble inlay cane be used as a tabletop. Note that the aluminum backer provides sufficient support for the marble top without any additional subbase.
Medallions up to 60" can be made as a single piece, ready to install. This would be impossible without the use of an aluminum substrate.
Other types of stone inlays available on the market have a number of shortcomings:
Mosaic medallion are made from small stones, tiles or glass pieces assembled together with grout gaps. It's typically attached to mesh on the back. Gaps between pieces have to be filled with grout. Medallions larger in size are more difficult to handle as the medallion is not solid; rather they are more flexible like a "pizza." Pieces may separate and get lost in transit or handling.
Tile medallions are made from cutting standard off-the-shelf ceramic, porcelain or travertine tiles. These medallions are typically shipped as a set of labeled, precut tiles to be assembled on-site. The installer will have to put grout between the tiles and assemble the pieces. Medallions will have seem lines going across the surface. Solid stone pieces are very heavy and fragile, prone to breakage in transit and handling, and expensive to ship.

page to find answers to the most common questions. All medallions over 48 inches are packaged in a wooden crate filled with special foam and shipped via freight company to prevent damage during shipping.
