These tiles are designed for various installation options. NOTE: Inspect all tiles before installation.

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.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by No problems at all. It has that million dollar mansion appearance. I installed a whole bathroom with this tile, shower walls and bathroom floor. One cracked tile separated as it was being cut with a wet-saw. Cut with wet-saw only. The store replace the broken tile with a good one. I am an amature at tile work and this product installed with great pleasure. I used "Sure-Bond Unsanded Thin-Set Mortar Mix" and "Thin-Set Mortar Admix" (a white milky liquid) NO WATER WITH THIS MIX. Enjoy your project! : ) May 9, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Amazing value, but lots of variation in color! Just bought this tile in store to redo my bathroom floor. It hasn't been installed yet, but the stone looks wonderful and higher class than porcelain or ceramic tiles. A big catch, however, is that you need to be very selective choosing the tiles because there is a lot of variation in shades. Some are really dark brown, some really light brown verging on gray, some with red marbling, some with almost no marbling, etc. So it's an amazing value, just be prepared to dig through the cases finding matching tiles!
