Rated 5 out of 5Â by justjackie The color is awesome
My product is actually darker than the picture but GORGEOUS. The installers were impressed that such a high quality flooring came from Home Depot, especially for the price that was paid. They had no problem installing it. It went down nicely, the color is beautiful and and it completely changed the look of my bathroom at a great price. Of course we have to put the toilet and sink back for the full effect but I am still in awe as it is right now. Love it!
Oh...and not one tile was cracked. Every piece was in tact and perfect.

Probably one of the nicest looking tiles, but horrible to install. Tiles were weak, cracked and nearly impossible to cut on the wet saw without them cracking. If it wasnt for the poor shipping responsible for the cracked tile, the tiles would allmost fall apart in my hands. More of the tiles would crack under the weight of walking on it and once they settled, still more have cracked! If it wasnt for how beautifull look of these tiles, they wouldnt be in my house. Advise, DONT BUY!!!!! Not worth the agrivation

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Kdub Maybe too cheap
This marble is very pretty and a great price- really the best price you'll find for marble hands down, but it is not high or even medium quality. There are crags in the gains that are not filled and that go more than half way through the stone. I was worried this could lead to breakage so it's going back.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Littlemock01 It's vital to inspect each tile no matter how long or the inconvienience.
We ordered over 270 temple grey 12 X 12 " polished marble grey floor tiles about three months ago. I have 10 strong years collectively in construction. I've laid and helped lay (with a few pros) several tile jobs and some of them big jobs. I was sure that this would be a fun and rewarding personal job on our kitchen floor. I have pictures of atleast 25 tiles that have significant cracks on the back (deep enough to deem the 70% weaker) and atleast 30 or more that have chipped/cracked corners. When the semi-truck pulled up to our house I was pumped up. So I didn't take the time to inspect every box (5 tiles a box and 30 lbs. each box) in the driveway that giddy and sunny day. Some of tiles are out of square, enough to show 3/16" to 1/4" off after laying 5 tiles in a horizontal row. Supposedly it wasn't a market standard to cut marble this big (12" sq.) and this thin (3/8" thin) and BOY HoDwY do I know why now. No floor is perfeclty square and there is very little deflection allowed under a given 300 lb. load or guess what??? The tiles will crack and come loose after you've laid 274 of them. As well (AND THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT) there is a fine dust film from the quarry that will render even the best mix of thinset useless or guess what?,your tiles won't bind to the concrete board substrate and your 270 tiles will just pop off. Consider my words you weekend warriors before you join the ranks of those that hang there head in disgust everytime you lay foot on your marble floor job. I use to blaze through jobs like this and now I lay between 6 and 8 tiles and see how they act due to the cracks, dust (handwash each tile how about it on the backs?), the out-of-square ones and the thinness of each tile. INSPECT EACH TILE exven if your solo and don't have the luxury of a crew of workers that you can pay dirt ($8 to $10 hourly). Put your hands and eyes on every single tile.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Myself Excellent value
Installed 70 sq ft of this. Only two cracked tiles in the lot, which I consider excellent for natural stone in this price range. No issues with installation, adhesion to floor, cutting (we installed diagonally, so there were a number of cuts) or cracking after install. Been rolling an office chair (which is tough on any flooring) over this tile for 2 weeks now with a 200 lb guy in it, no issues. Looks great, very inexpensive.
