Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Danny Great product and easy to work with
Covered the brick on our fireplace. Easy to cut with a wet saw and diamond tipped 4" grinding wheel. I read the reviews on the corner pieces and decided to miter the corners at 45 degrees with my wet saw. I covered the brick on the fireplace with concrete backer board first to give me a smooth/ level surface to work on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JennrhH Looks even better when on the wall!
What I'd really like to do is a full remodel but I'm to cheap so I went for little projects with large impact. After reading all the comments about all the broken pieces, I ordered two packages (5boxes per package) more than what I needed so the installer wouldn't have to stop mid installation. Well, there was only 1 broken piece in all the boxes so the packaging got better or it was handled with more care. These are HEAVY HEAVY HEAVY! I can't tell you how much I love these and I really love how easily they went up. And yes, they can be cut with a regular saw

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by miracle4cc Excellent product with easy install
I wanted this for a backsplash. I placed a double order of 10 boxes (30 square feet in 5 boxes) because I read the reviews about broken pieces. Actually, there were a few broken ones in 1 box and a couple that had glue on the front but I took it anyway and used them for ones I needed to cut. Easy to install but you will need to use mastic. I originally bought the sticky mat hoping to save some time but these are too heavy. The ledger stone cut like a breeze with my small diamond wet saw. Project only took one day. Best thing is that you don't have to grout! Very happy with the results. I have a few boxes left so plan to do a wall in the master bath one day next week.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DPL7 Great look
I custom built a fireplace in my basement and was skeptical on this product. I bought two pallets worth of this and by then end I was working with scraps to finish up. Overall I am very pleased. I spent about 20 hours to install all of the stone. I wasnt happy with the corner pieces. If you get the corner piece level in the front it threw off the site and vice versa. I am sure to a masonary guy he could make the adjustment by simply cutting the stone. For me it left minor gaps on the side that I will end up putting in grout to hide. The front is nearly perfect the side has some minor imperfections.

For the price, this is a nice way to really upgrade your look, even though these are made in China, which is not my favorite. That might explain why so many of us had broken pieces, so order more than you need. They are usually free to ship to the store, so you can pick them up there and look through them before you take them home, which will save you a trip later. Or you can have it delivered to your door and return what you cant use. Some broken pieces can be used for cutting anyway.
This looks stunning installed, especially with some lighting to pop the natural variations in the stones. Timeless beauty. I get compliments on it all the time. Find someone skilled with a wet saw for the install if you need to go around outlets or corners, which can be really tricky, given the nature of the stone differences. Home Depot also carries the corners pieces, which are just as susceptible to breaking during shipping. You'll also need mastic and longer screws to reinstall your outlet covers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Singingintherain Love this Stone Tile!!!
We had our this tile mounted 8 foot wall with our fireplace at the center. It looks wonderul! I would highly recommend this. The only thing is that you have to be careful when you pick up the tile from store. Take the time to look at it to make sure that you do not have a lot of damaged tiles.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MattZup Love how it looks. Shipping was a pain.
Let me start by saying, this stone is beautiful and you can't beat the price. I installed it to surround our gas fireplace. The mix of natural colors really bring the whole room together. It wasn't especially hard to cut, similar to regular tile. When I got to the last row, I had to cut some extremely thin pieces, which wasn't optimal. I used Versabond mortar.
I needed about 20 sq. ft. of tile. Home Depot is only doing orders of 30 sq. ft., which was fine because I wanted to account for scraps and some broken tiles. My local Home Depot never notified me that the shipment was in. I called to check and it had been there for several days. Luckily, I went through the boxes before I left and found that a ridiculous number of the tiles were broken. I had to mix and match tiles from boxes and I was able to salvage 3 out of 5 boxes. But since the order only comes in denominations of 5, I had to return the whole order and have them ship me 5 more boxes. Luckily shipping was fast (which might explain the lack of carefulness with the boxes) and the new shipment of 5 boxes was delivered in a couple of days. This shipment also had a lot of broken tiles. With the 3 boxes from the first order still in the store, I was able to salvage 2 full boxes from the second shipment to complete my order. My advice is to order a lot more than you need and check the boxes before you leave the store.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by LovetoRemodel This product has a beautiful stacked stone finished look that is quite dramatic.
This is a great product that is made from real granite/quartz pieces. Unlike the faux products that you can find that are similar, it is looks much better because it has a lot of variations to it. One recommendation that I would give is to buy the corner pieces. I didn't know about them when I bought the stone and they would have made piecing the puzzle together, easier. Still 5 stars. Great product that gave beautiful results to my "spa" bathroom.
