Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BobbyPins Very nice tile, but
I installed this tile a year ago in my master bath only used by my wife and I. I would not use in a high traffic area. Although it is very durable, if it should chip the white porcelain will show. This has not happened to me. This is a glazed tile, not full body color through and through. There is a lot of variation in the colors which is very nice and gives a slate like appearance, but order extra than normal because some of the tiles look like they are a completely different style and cannot be used with the rest. There is a thin white edging that is covered by the grout.
That being said this is a very nice tile and a good price, but I wouldn't use it in a kitchen or larger area. Great on walls too.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer Lovely but not through-body color
No where in the tile decriptions can I find specification for through-body color, so the only way to know is from reviews. I'm disappointed, because I ordered one box so I could see samples, and the tiles are beautiful with lots of variation among tiles. But I am trying to decide if I can live with basically a white tile with a very thin veneer of pattern which, if it chips, will be hard to disguise the white behind it. The edges have a faint white line which may or may not be disguised after grouting, but I don't think I want to take the chance. I may consult my tile layer before returning, but I do wish this site could include specs for through-color or not. At this price, I expected a through-body porcelain....

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tacoma Emphasis on Sage
The mottled brown picture on the website doesn't do justice to this tile. It does a good job representing one of the patterns, but one of the other "genres" of pattern can be seen in the 13x13 Jade Ochre picture. The color ranges from a true sage green to browns and tans. Overall dark, but so pretty that we actually switched our plan from a darker to a lighter countertop to accommodate this darker tile. Absolutely gorgeous with the piano tile backsplash with pale green and blue glass with some dark brown.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tacoma If you like green, you may love this tile
Ordered this tile because I loved the movement, but was a little skeptical about the color. When I got it, I had to cancel my plan for a granite countertop because my favorite granites wouldn't have gone with this tile - but I loved the tile too much to send it back. My daughter worked for 3 hours to lay out our 8'x8' kitchen floor, but now it looks like we have "rivers" flowing through our kitchen. Absolutely beautiful! There are 2 different "themes" in the tile; one is dark green with veins of beige; the other is more of a muckled green/brown/white that is like looking through a leafy tree. If you want to stick with only one theme, you'd have to order extra tile. We are satisfied with how we mixed it up to look like a creek bed running through our kitchen surrounded by dappled shade trees. It IS dark, so we paired it with Ivory Coast Silestone and the pale green, blue and brown glass/travertine mixed Merola Mosaic Tile backsplash. It is an oasis!
