With a large selection of sizes and accessories to choose from, this tile can easily be laid in a pattern or single layout and is suitable for residential and commercial installations, including kitchens and bathrooms. 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 3.7 out of 5 by 6 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value, looks great Beautiful looking tile - not one broken or damaged tile in all 18 cases - strongly recommend using a penetrating sealer like "Enrich and Seal" prior to laying to make cleanup easier. This is an expensive sealer but well worth it. Most of the tiles had a lighter gray color with some having a black look. Also, use a wet saw to cut. There were a few tiles with heavy clefting that I used under counters, stove, and fridge, but overall most were high quality. Make sure and order at least 10% extra to compensate for cuts and waste. I used black grout, modified thin set mortar and Hardie 1/4" backerboard. 1/4" x 1/4" trowel and 1/8" grout lines. December 2, 2011
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by used to resurface our fireplace hearth nice looking stone. used wet saw to cut 6 equal pieces to cover our fireplace hearth which had been stained from years of use. be sure to order more than needed so you can better select matching tiles. December 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very good product I am a diy guy. I have used slate on two other homes. This is the most consistent color and texture I have found. I received my order quickly and not one piece was broken or chipped. It made a beautiful fireplace surround and hearth. I applied it over the existing ceramic tile using adhesive. It is quite easy to work with. December 8, 2012
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nice look We used these tiles to update our kitchen/diner and hallway. They looked very nice but you can see dusty footprints really easily and it seems like our dog is scratching the tiles. Not really what we expected but I guess if you don't have an active pet like we do go for it. January 2, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great look! I just installed this a couple days ago, so I can't comment on durability but so far I love it. these are gorgeous and look a lot more expensive than they are. Warning-- I found them to be a lot darker in person, but they are beautiful with various grays in color variation. I found many had slight clips, etc. but I just placed he strategically and made cuts on ones with more chipping. I'm not that experienced in tile so I don't know if it's because of shipping or due to just being natural stone. Either way, it was easy to work around and they look PERFECT! March 4, 2014
