We used the 12 x 12 Emperador Light polished marble to cover the dark brick on our fireplace. With a mushroom grout (sandstone), the veins in the tile and the grout stand out nicely. It makes the fireplace very attractive and look high end so that you notice it when you come in the room.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not as good as Daltile I bought this as a fill in to another brand I had been using. I ran short and this was quicker to ship. This is a natural stone so all brands should be the same. Color matched to orignals weel but stone was more porous and had not been filled. It was also of softer quailty and the first piece I cut fell apart on the saw. Luckily no others did, however, serveal other splintered at the cut line. I had already cut and installed 28 cases from 2 batches throught he other brand (Daltile) and did not find these issues or flaws.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Beware of variances in quality between boxes. I am reviewing the second of two orders that I recently placed for Emperador Light marble. Unlike my first order, which consisted of two boxes of very nice and high quality marble, my second order was disapppointing. The marble was very brittle and shattered easly while being cut or even when being lifted by an edge. This poor quality caused various problems in the installation of our back splash. In the future, I will be sure to get all of the marble that I need in one order and to immediately return any shipment that appears to be of questionable quality..

Rated 1 out of 5 by from breakage, inconsistent quality I ordered 2 cases of these to reface my fireplace...first case was fine, however every tile in the second case was broken...Home Depot was very quick to accept the return and reorder a new case...the replacement case was not in the original was obviously assembled from prior rejects...several tiles showed obvious signs of crack repairs and several others had chipped edges...fortunately I was able to salvage enough good tiles to complete my project...tiles are pretty but if you factor in the value of the junk tiles they are no bargain...this is the second time that I had big problems with web ordered stone tiles from home depot and I won't do it again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst tile purchase Had to special order the tile, comes in orders of 4 tiles, shipped two to a box. One box, both tiles broken, second box one cracked. Home Deport apologized and reordered for me, next shipment, all four tiles broken. I canceled my order. This was not the fault of Home Depot, poor packaging from MSI

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge improvement to look in room. We used these 12 inch tiles to cover the old, dark brick on our fireplace. The polished look gives a bright appearance to the fireplace. We used a mushroom grout, which is a sandstone color. The combination of the veins in the tile and the beige grout gives a rich look to the fireplace.
