Use the MS International 18 in. x 18 in. Absolute Black Granite Floor and Wall Tile, a tile that exudes classic, ageless beauty. This tile can be used on floors, walls and countertops in bathroom and kitchen installations. It is suitable for both commercial and residential use. The black granite tile is polished with a smooth surface and a high sheen. It is unglazed and has a moderate variation in tone. NOTE: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish, etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer. After installation, vendor disclaims any liabilities.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Purchase I Made I am extremely pleased with this product. When I decided to get it I was told it would not be good to use in the kitchen or laundry room. I love the rich look this absolute black granite tile adds to both the kitchen and the laundry room. It is the best choice I made. July 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent choice for bar top We used the granite for our bar top. It looks amazing. We were afraid the average wet saw would not make the custom cuts but it worked wonderfully. My husband did a great job installing it. He said it was not that much different from installing ceramic tile. October 23, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by flooring The product is beautiful and when it arrived all four pieces were broken...since my contractor could salvage with cuts I didnt return to store:( February 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Good Quality Product Shipping was on time and without issue, packaged very well. I researched similar products at local suppliers (PA) and no one could match Home Depot's price, availability and delivery time. The quality, color and appearance was consistent with all delivered pieces. The 18"x18" size is not available for purchase in the store, however the 12"x12" is and good to use as a visual reference if needed. Customer service is the best when making internet purchases :).
