Basalt is a natural stone and the favoured finish for corners and reveals as you can simply butt the cut edges together as seen in the photo above; here we see the stone has been cut and the horizontal lines have been continued around the corner.
An alternative method for corners and reveals would be the use of tiling trim along all cut edges, basalt panels are 10mm thick and so there are a vast array of products on the market that would complement Lynia™ panels.

Each Lynia™ stone tile unit consists of nine strips mounted on a thin base for ease of installation. Similar to any standard natural stone wall tile installation, the working surface should be prepared. The stone tile mats are fixed to the wall using a polymer modified tile thinset / adhesive and then grouted with un-sanded grout. Like most natural stones, basalt wall tiles are designed to be cut on a tile wet saw.
Basalt is a natural porous stone and therefore it easily attracts and retains oils, dirt, and other contaminants. Norstone UK recommends taking the necessary precautions during installation and handling to keep the tiles clean and then sealing all with a water based, penetrating natural stone sealer once installation is completed. Natural stone sealants have different characteristics so please test any sealant prior to application on a scrap piece of basalt stone or in an inconspicuous area.
