Not as shown in picture, very little colour or texture, just dull black slate.

These natural stone slate tiles really do look nice, but...
When I went to lay them I realized that they are all different thicknesses. I guess being a natural material that's understandable but it makes it extremely difficult to get a flat finished surface.
With a lot of patience you can get a beautiful stone finish, but not for the faint of heart.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Farmerboy Nice slate poor "factory" packaging
The slate was and is beautiful, I always enjoy opening up the boxes and see the differences of each piece and it own individual features,
as stated the factory packaging was less than desired, as there were cracked pieces internal in the boxes, we had enough to do the project and it turned out looking great,
do to the fact it is natural materials, the thickness varies and setting it can be a challenge as one piece may be 3/8" thick on one edge and 1/4 on the other side, so one will have to adjust the bedding mortar accordingly.
grouting is more challenging as well as it is unsealed, product and one needs to keep working on the washing of the tiles for a longer time than with the ceramic glazed products, if one does not, a grout haze could be left on the slate, this may take three or more hours of time, after grouting,
(note: the counter tile is the slate on this order, the wall slate was slate from earlier purchase from HD, for wood stove backing)

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KM Nice tiles but...
I purchased these tiles to add to some I already had from HD and Lowes. Did not really need whole tiles because I intend to cut them as subway tiles to mix in with my other ones, which is a good thing because 7 out of 10 were broken! I can't really blame Home Depot or the company these came from because these were shipped to my home and fault may be with the shipping. They were packed fairly well, but did not have a FRAGILE sticker on the box, which probably would have helped reduce the amount of broken tiles. I work for a package carrier, and I know first hand how heavy boxes are treated. If I needed whole tiles I would be very upset, but I will keep them and try to get as many cuts out of them as I can. There will definitely be more waste, but I need the color. My suggestion is to have them shipped to store for pickup, and also that the company start putting FRAGILE stickers on the boxes.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Donkeyrokman Not impressed
I ordered one case to test the quality, and returned it immediately. Two tiles were broken and crumbly...never a good sign, and none of the tiles were the same thickness. Several of them were thick on one side and thin on the other. This would be a big hassle to work with, and it wasn't pretty enough to make up for it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by aj676 Great product, poor packaging for shipping
Love the slate. The color is exactly what I was looking for. The thickness could have been gauged a bit better but we're working with the differences and it's ok. The shipping crate however appears to have had a forklift fork go through part of it. A couple of boxes of tile were damaged. Seems like they should have had more buffer and the tile facing inward to reduce breakage and scratching.

We are using this slate to put in a hearth for our wood burning stove. As with slate, there are variations in color and thickness. We just worked around the thinner pieces, using them for the wall work. I personally love the variation in color - you can be your own artist and set out the variations as you see fit. It is going to look amazing when done.
