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.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by 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. May 27, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by 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. June 7, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by 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.. March 1, 2012
Rated 1 out of 5 by 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 August 17, 2013
