You can use this handsome tile in residential and commercial installations, and it's suitable for use on a wall, floor or countertop. The tile is frost proof, so it can be used indoors or outside.

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 4.5 out of 5 by 48 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Absolutely beautiful Some of the best looking tiles ever, also extremely high quality. No breaks or chips at all during the cutting process. The gold flakes are spectacular! May 7, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful when very clean Beautiful and dramatic shiny dark stone with sparkles that change with viewing angle. Try to find a real sample to look at. Pictures don't do it justice. It is similar to granite--a natural stone that cooled slowly under the surface. (The difference is the percentages of the various minerals that were included in the molten rock.) Since it is very dark, it really shows fingerprints or smudges. Choose it if you are willing to keep it very clean, and if its almost black surface suits your location. We bought a box, but decided not to use it. It was too dark for where were going to put it, and we were afraid it would need too much cleaning to keep it spotless. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Just beautiful Had this installed in front of my fireplace for the hearth. I just love the tiles, cant stop looking at them. They are just beautiful! May 3, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Not the greatest, tile is foggy, needs polishing Quality is poor, pieces aren't square and price is outrageous! Plan to have uneven joints and have a polisher handy. September 20, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Purchased online- Free Shipping and it looks Great! Easy! Easy! Easy! We shopped all of the high end tile stores for similar products and then happened to look online at the Home Depot site. The prices were much better than the speciality stores and they shipped right to my home for free. Also more choices for sizes- for us the 18" by 31" was much more appealing than square tiles. We used the Black Galaxy granite to cover a portion of a brick fireplace and it goes great with the new black doors. The finished edges were perfect for our application and it was easy to install using some thinset mortar. I was able to cut the tiles using a diamond blade and a skill saw. All in all, this is a great product and I was really happy with Home Depot. December 2, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great product at a great price this exact tile cost twice as much elsewhere and three times as much at COLES May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful slices of rock Gorgeous tile. Exactly What I wanted and looks stunning on the bartop. I was a bit leery of ordering something like tile, even granite tile which isn't as brittle as porcelain, to be shipped directly to my house but everything turned out fine. It arrived within three days via UPS, the tile was double boxed and well cushioned in the boxes and shipping charges were imminently reasonable at just $12. It cost less to ship this than 6 pieces of wood I ordered for this project from another vendor (Home Depot doesn't carry quartersawn oak.) June 5, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Used the 12 x 12 for a fireplace makeover - worked perfectly! We had an fireplace that had used brick and a Mexican paver hearth on a home we just bought. Completely ugly, and impossible to clean. My son wanted a black mantel, and we had used the black galaxy granite on his kitchen counters, so wanted to match it. Got the 12 x 12's for ease of installation and affordability. Pulled the old pavers, put down cement board, cut the tiles to fit with no problem, and installation completed without problems. Used a dark grey grout. Really happy with the end result. July 30, 2013
