Tile background

Anyone ever heard of this before? The idea would be to attach the 12"x12" stone pattern tiles to the back glass with ge1 clear silicon. Sealing the tiles to the glass. Thoughts and opinions on this? I have enough tile that this project would only cost me time and a tube or 2 of silicon.

I have heard of people doing this and from memory it sounded a nice idea.

I wonder if the tile has anything / chemicals in it from when it was manufactured and sealed?
