I was absolutely thrilled to find a Cararra-look product that was so stunning. I absolutely didn't want natural stone in my shower, but finding the right product was a real challenge.
Then I found this.
My general contractor loved it...and he was prepared not to like it. Easy to install and a great look. He said this was a product he would use in his own home, and his tastes run to the more expensive end of things. :)
I used a glass mosaic border tile from MS International (Cristallo) as the accent tile and a matte hexagon mosaic for the floor tile. The shower is all white, grey, chrome and marble. Just beautiful.
Do yourself a favor and consider this tile for your shower. It won't have the problems or maintenance issues a natural stone product will, but it will give you the high end look of Cararra.
(The pink tinge in the photos is from my flash. We're still remodeling, and light is not its best in there right now.)

This tile is what makes my bathroom. It is beautiful. It has a nice sheen to it and seems to be of good quality for a fair price. Had a professional install so I can't comment on ease of installation, but got no complaints from them. Goes great with some wood look tile I picked out for the floor from Home Depot.

The tiles are beautiful to work with and provide a beautiful result. My bathroom remodel included tiling (using this product) around an old iron/ceramic tub and new vent window and glass block window. I used the 10 x 14 inch tiles along with the bullnose trim. The tiles were large and heavy so we were advised to use a strong, quick-holding adhesive which worked perfectly!
Out of the four boxes of tile I purchased, two boxes contained a broken tile on the bottom (it is possible this damage occurred due to my own transporting/handling of the boxes - coincidentally, I transported two boxes in the bed of a pickup truck and two more in the passenger compartment of a car but I am not sure which ended up with a damaged tile). I was able to use the pieces in places where the tile was cut. Two more had very tiny imperfections - a very small dot where the glaze was missing. I was able to use one, cutting off the imperfection - the other got past me and I noticed the small dot when it filled with grout - which I simply left filled with grout.
Though it looks delicate, the tile is very tough, it cut beautifully (using a diamond circular blade and water/electric cutter) - it didn't matter whether I had the glazed side up or down. It was also able to endure small bumps, short drops (a few inches) and bumping pieces together.
I loved the large size - it made the work go very fast. I installed two rows at a time and allowed the adhesive to set before adding more rows. However, I do not believe I needed to do so. The adhesive held very well.
I used a platinum sand-free grout (sand-free was a personal preference) and it looks very nice. I added Daltile Stone Decorative Accents Snow Illusion 2-5/8 in. x 12 in. Decorative Accent Wall Tile which really added to the overall beauty of the project.

Tile was installed in the shower and tub surround. I used polyblend bright white grout with the tile. It came out amazing, better than I expected. For the price it is excellent quality and will give you that marble look without the marble maintenance or price.

Just had this tile installed in my small 1 bd condo. My contractor commented on the high quality of this tile and how easy it was to install. For the grout, we used a mixture of polyblend snow white and polyblend delorean gray (much more white than gray). Since I was having a hard time finding a picture prior to installation, I am posting a picture of my bathroom for those who may find it useful. Again, very happy with my choice.
