Product Overview

With its smooth, polished finish and its subtle variations in tone, the MS International 12 in. x 3/4 in. Black Granite Pencil Moulding Wall Tile exudes an aura of ageless beauty. This wall tile is constructed from durable black granite with an impervious water absorption rating and is a great choice for adding a splash of traditional style to a variety of residential and commercial spaces, such as bathrooms and kitchens. 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.

Answer: 
The color match is perfect. I noticed only slightly more "flecks" in the 12 x 12 tiles but they look great together.

Answer: 
With the polished natural stone like granite or marble you have to use an unsanded grout. I prefer the polymer fortified grout. If using an epoxy grout, extra care must be taken to keep the grout from drying on the surface. I would recommend using the blue painter's tape on the edge of the tile to keep the epoxy grout off of the tile altogether if that's the way you choose to go.

Answer: 
Hey there Diamond,
You'll want to use a Non-Sanded type grout to fill joints. This will ensure that you won't have to worry about scratching the surface of the granite. An example is linked below.

Customer Reviews

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 19 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice very nice color , no difference in color between pieces. I used 6 pieces to separate two kinds of ceramic tiles in my bathroom remodeling job. April 5, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Broken on arrival I ordered twelve of these, and four of them were broken when I removed them from the box. I haven't returned them because I needed to cut some shorter pieces anyway, so I think I'll be okay. They need to do more than just stick unwrapped tiles into a box with some styrofoam pellets (I hate those things anyway!). June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good, BUT BEWARE !! Tile pencils were of good quality and easy to cut without breaking. The only fault I had with them was I found there was an inconsistency between the thickness of the pieces. I assumed when I purchased them that they would all be the same size, but they weren't. I had to go back and purchase more to get the size to match and them return the fatter pieces. This was not worth the hassel. March 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Love this Pencil tile I love this granite pencil tile. I have used this on 4 jobs and most of the Home Depot's in my area(Greater Houston) do not carry it anymore. Also get a better price point also. August 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Customer Service Product matched description and installed very nicely. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exactly what I needed the tile pencil of granite was in perfect condition and at a very reasonable price. It was perfect for my backsplash project. March 25, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't buy These strips of granite are EXPENSIVE GARBAGE. All different sizes and colors. Some "Galaxy" black mixed in with the absolute black, and every piece of tile was a different size (length and width). They are individually wrapped in plastic, so you don't really see the finished tile until you're installing. Most of the bullnose on the tile looks like it was done by hand (???) - very rough, and unfinished. We paid over $250 just to finish the top of a backsplash with these, and the finished product really looks bad. August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Looks great! Really finishes off the absolute black granite. I would've given these pencil molding a 5 if they had all been the same, but we found out the hard way that they (we used 18) were different radius'. While it really was only a subtle difference it was obvious, especially when you stood back and looked. They were all exactly the same height, though. I do wish that they would make them in a long dimension, ie the usually 18 or 19 inch under the cabinet space. But, all in all, they do look beautiful against the black granite we used in our backsplash. August 13, 2014
