Product Overview

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.

Customer Questions & Answers

Can this tile be used outside on a patio that doesn't have a covering?

I am looking to put it over the concrete that is discoloring.

Yes, this is a natural stone, as long as you use a exterior mortar.

Can you use around a gas fireplace?

Asked by: mich
I would say yes however I recommend using a sealer as this material is very pourous. That said you would need a sealer that is not flammable.

Can this slate be installed in a shower?

Asked by: Nola
My wife and I used this in our Shower in 2006 it turned out great and we still like it today. I sealed it with a glossy tile sealer and it has held up good almost 10 years later.

Customer Reviews

Rustique Earth 12 in. x 12 in. Gauged Slate Floor and Wall Tile (10 sq. ft. / case) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 24.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful when you are done Tricky to lay, thinner pieces are breakable. We've used this slate before. You must seal it with a stone sealer before grouting or you will be sorry. Lay the pieces out from several boxes to mix the colors before adhering to your floor. We used tiny, tiny, grout lines - we like the uneven lay of the floor. Looks awesome with a high gloss finish. At first we did matte, just doesn't bring the stone's beauty out enough. Once it's down and grouted, breakage is not an issue - except those occasional high corners due to size differences. They just wear down over time

Slate matched even though it came from India. Originals came from China (I had the old box from the previous homeowner). About 10% were cut so inconsistent that they were marginally useable. Thicknesses vary greatly which made installation a bit of a challenge. This was important because of matching up with existing tile. Colors were slightly different but not to far off the installed tiles. Cutting was a breeze with my circular wet saw. Matching grout was the biggest challenge but it turn out great. Buy extras for broken or unusable tiles. Planning to seal and color enhance which make the tiles really pop with color.

Product is represented to be 8.9 sq' per case, only received 7.25 sq', 3 of the 5 tiles were broken and only one fell into the Rustic Earth Color tone, the other tiles were gray-black with an occasional splotch of Rustic Earth

Also easy to break, I opened many boxes with broken pieces. No, I will not recommend this material to anyone else.

It's a beautiful natural stone with coloring variations within and between squares. Used for a fireplace hearth and matches the Rustique stacked stone panels I used for the front of the fireplace well. It's a pain to install though and I was glad I ordered a lot of extra. First, many of the tiles in the box were cracked or split, especially corners. We laid out all the tiles we had and sorted them for color and thickness and to have the chipped parts in cut off sections. They also are tricky to cut, tend to break or shear layers off so lost a few more there. The huge thickness variation between squares (and sometimes from side to side on a square tile) made it impossible to get a totally level floor and there are uneven seams, but my tile guy did a decent job of matching and said the variation is part of the charm of natural stone floors. We went with no grout and that seemed to work well. I did some leveling of the seams by taking a small hammer and chisel and carefully shearing off layers of stone, so where the height varied the variations were moved to be within the tile along natural looking tile layers, rather than having differences at the edges where tiles meet.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful slate! Typical slate gauging that varies in thickness. This style (Rustic Earth) matches hardwood flooring very well. Zero breakage...tiles were strapped down sideways to a pallet with sideboarding and the shipping and handling was flawless. Squareness of tile was often 1/4" out of square, not Home Depot's fault. Installed on stairs (with hardwood bull nosing) and landing with no grout joint so squaring tiles was important, but also typical of natural stone product. Definitely recommend this product for its beauty and price...why the review is only allowing me to choose one star is more flawed than the slate. 5 stars!
