Gold Fleck in Black Pebble Finish?

michtxDecember 6, 2012


We are are scheduled for pebble on Tuesday on a rectangular pool infinity edge which wraps around one corner. The pool is on the edge of a bluff with light travertine coping and pavers, almost black waterline and weir wall tile, black epoxy grout - both the tile and grout do seem to have tiny reflective flecks in them. We are looking for maximum surface reflection and a calm, Zen ambiance.

PB has asked if we might want gold flecks in the finish for increased shimmer or water effect. Has anyone tried or seen this in a finish? Any opinions- like or disliked??

Thanks for any input,

I've never heard of gold flecks being added...abolone shells yes, but not gold. Interesting. Get written warranty on it all, and post pics if you go through with it!

Wanted to update the info. The company's (CL Industries) black pebble is 95% black pebble and 5% gold pebble in a black matrix/substrate. The color mixes are infinitely customizable so I was offered the option of increasing the amount of fleck - but what was really meant was increasing the percentage of gold pebble - no fleck is involved. The black with 5% gold looks very sharp - fingers crossed!
