With its dramatic veining and its rich brown coloration, this MS International 12 in. x 12 in. Emperador Dark Marble Floor and Wall Tile is a great way to add a traditional aesthetic touch to your decor. This polished tile is constructed from durable, impervious marble material, comes in a smooth, unglazed finish and is suitable for installation on floors, walls and countertops in commercial and residential 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.

Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Low quality tile The tile out of box was good looking, with uniform coloring and slight grey veins. However, one week after installation dark grey and white spots appeared out of nowhere which did not exist before installation. As a result, the installed floor looks really bad. I have 10 extra tiles not installed - all look perfect, no such spots. March 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Support I was leery of ordering stone on-line, but decided to give it a try and order 2 1/2 boxes. Though the boxes were well packed, one had been hit in the corner and 5 pieces were broken. I took pictures and called Home Depot ready for battle, but was very pleasantly surprised when the said "No problem, we'll send you 5 new pieces". No need to return the broken pieces, no shipping charges and they didn't even need my photographs of the damaged box. This was great customer service, especially for a "big box" store. I will definitely order this way again. December 21, 2011
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent product! We are very, very happy with it. It meant our expectations and it appears to be all we wanted it to be. May 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Emperador Dark Marble 12 X 12 tile Using this tile for the top of a small bar. Absolutely beautiful product. Couldn't be happier with the quality. It will make a nice statement for not a lot of $. December 16, 2010
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great looking marble tile Tile looks great but very fragile. It comes with an epoxy coating on the back side to help hold together. Would not use in high traffic area. January 31, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor quality but not really Home Depot's fault I started out wanting Emperador Dark slab countertops in the bathroom, but after calling every stone supplier in the area, I quickly found that no one has slabs without huge flaws. Apparently it's near the end of the quarry and the marble is of poor quality. I then decided to try the tiles and of 70 sq ft, found 10 that were lovely. The rest had huge cracks filled with brown, beige or orange fill, lots of large white quartz blobs, etc. Tile colors ranged from cafe au lait to dark chocolate which made it impossible to "blend" the colors. Trying other suppliers resulted in the same problem so I changed the design and countertop material. May 31, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Priced same product at local retail stores as much as $24 a sq. ft. Paid $8.99 on line. bought on line. The shipping was quick and conveniant. December 27, 2011
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AVOID - serious defects I bought 7 cartons of this marble, and in the first (and only) box I opened half the tiles had large cavities and cracks filled in with an off-color, brown/black epoxy. These blemishes are glaringly obvious and make the tile look horrible. The only positive I can say is that the return went smoothly, after I had to reload it all in the car that is. AVOID at all costs. March 2, 2014
