My husband and I installed this over a long weekend. We installed the tile on Friday, sealed the tile on Saturday (apply two applications BEFORE grouting), and grouted on Sunday. We used PolyBlend Natural Gray grout and caulk. If by some miracle you can tile without having to cut the stone, you are lucky. This tile was a pain to cut. It would chip and break off in layers. We wasted almost a full 12 x 12 sheet trying to cut tiles to size (luckily our son was out of the house or he would have learned several four-letter words that came out of my husband's mouth). Overall this turned out better than we had imagined, but will hire someone to install natural stone in the future. The pictures were taken before we caulked at the bottom and before we sealed the grout.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by handyhomeowner natural stone, varied colors makes a great backsplash
I installed this on a kitchen backsplash. Very easy to work with. I didn't have the problem of layers breaking up when I trimmed pieces, as was mentioned in another review. They are natural stone and vary in thickness and smoothness. Some of the 2x2's had had chips-probably from the tumbling to smooth them and some were thicker than the surrounding tiles and created a bump. On a backsplash, it created a textured look that I liked but on a flat surface, it might be a problem.

These natural stone tiles are nice looking and relatively easy to work with. They work well for accent tiles and are easy to use in four inch or six inch strips, making them very affordable.
The down side is that this type of rock is sedimentary, and I had a few tiles where the pressure from pressing it onto the wall with my fingertips was enough to make the top layer come off. It was easy enough to glue back together and I don't think it's likely to be a long term problem. But it's even worse if you have to cut these down to size. I could not do it without the tiles breaking into layers, but I was able to fix them. This happened on unrelated sections of tile.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ames47 Excellent Accent Tile!
We have this tile inlaid in two places on our center island in our kitchen. Both square foot sections set in a diamond shape and are surrounded by natural beige-colored tile. We used brown grout.
There are so many colors in these tiles, we have many choices for color schemes in our kitchen - from slate to copper to green to red. Lots of fun earth tones! And they add a lot of interest to our kitchen. The brown grout is also an excellent choice not only to break up the monotony of the beige base tiles, but to hide any stains.
The tile is not only versatile, but more importantly they hold up to hot pots and dirt. The tiles are located directly opposite my stove. When I pull pots off of the stove and onto the island they almost always go directly onto these tiles.
I've had them for 2+ years. I highly recommend these tiles.

I bought these for my master bath remodel to go in the toulet/shower room. We love the natural look and the contractor said they were a little difficult to work with as they split when cutting. Even he loved it when done though. There is a highth difference from tile to tile so if you must have an abolutely level floor this isn't the best choice. There are some mica flakes in some tiles so there is a little bit of sparkle that goes great with the granite shower. The shower has silver flecks in it too so it ties it together. I would love to use it in the guest bath when we finish remodeling it as well

I recently used this as accent tile in a fireplace surround. Loved it in the store & love it on the wall! The color variations are much more subtle than glass mosaics & I like the natural, earthy feel it has. The tiles are not completely uniform - some are thicker, some have chips, etc - so keep that in mind. As long as it's in a spot where that won't matter, I absolutely recommend this tile!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Coastal what I needed to match older tiles
I needed natural stone tiles to match tiles installed at some time in the past before I owned this home. Home Depot online is the only place I was able to find this type of tile. Sheets of tile varied by about 40% in thickness of the tiles...half of sheets were thicker and half of sheets were thinner..for my application, this worked OK, but thickness variation might be a problem for some installations. I had professional installation of tile, and that may be necessary due to different thicknesses of tile sheets and individual tiles.

product was not readily available, some of the tiles did peel, which is typical for slate
