Conchella Subway Natural 11-3/4 in. x 11-3/4 in. x 2 mm Natural Seashell Mosaic Tile is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17.

I love how this product looks installed, but be for-warned that each lot is slightly different with respect to how the individual shells are laid out on the mesh backing. My job required more than a 10 piece box, which was different from individual sheets. each lot is slightly different in size and layout. It took additional time to modify (cut backing) to make pieces from different lots fit together. For example, when I needed two partial pieces, it turned out to be eight partial pieces modified to fit what was already installed. what a pain to trim backing with scissors. Finished job looks really good. The Mother of pearl looks better than any man-made tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Naturally gorgeous My very experienced contractor had never installed anything like this before, and was a bit apprehensive about all the cuts I wanted, but he said it was fine to work with. He did have to back it with a thin sheet of plywood in places where it butted up against the porcelain tile, because the shell tile is very thin. The only comment he made was that the rows of shell were not always perfectly even, but I love the organic, artisan appearance that gives it. It is absolutely GORGEOUS on the walls, it glows with its own iridescence, in daylight and under electrical light. Even though it was pricey, I am so glad I chose this, it looks amazing, is waterproof, cleans with a damp sponge, and is the focal point of the entire bath.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unique and Beautiful This tile was just what I was looking for. In certain lighting, its iridescence is the primary feature. The natural colors of browns, beige, gold and off-white are beautifully neutral. I was concerned about my own skill level so I hired an experienced tile professional to install this product as my kitchen backsplash. I liked the result so much, that I also had the backsplash for two bathrooms done. My installer indicated that he had not worked with sea shell material before, but he did not have any partcular problems when installing this although the thinness of the tile required some extra attention when setting. Directions for installation specific to working with sea shell tile were not provided, only a generic tile installation sheet was included. After doing an online search. I found some helpful guidance about installation and care specific to sea shell tile, which my installer used. The manufacturer should have provided this information. I also think this product was pricey. Overall, Home Depot has great customer service and with free shipping and beautiful results, I have to recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful product that we will probably use to add a new backsplash. Beautiful product that we hope to use to remodel our kitchen. However, we will not be using Home Depot services since they would only come out to give use an estimate if we got an estimate for cabinet refacing in addition to what we wanted which was countertops, appliances, sink, faucet and backsplash. We had our initial appt. cancelled by Home Depot and didn't know about that until the morning of the appt. because I called to make sure they were coming out. They we made another appt. and when they called to confirm, they informed us they wouldn't come out if we didn't have a reface estimate. Poor customer service.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a Beautiful Backsplash This tile was very easy to work with and we're extremely pleased with the results. Take care that you not use too much adhesive as the thin tiles don't allow room for much grout. We used bright white adhesive and bright white grout and avoided uneven coloring.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this tile!!! Put this this around my fireplace, looks absolutely beautiful . Was easy to install, a little time consuming ,but well worth the time it took to get something not everyone else has. when the light changes during the day and shows different colors it's so pretty.went from a dark corner to one that is a focal point in the room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and so different I bought one sheet of this to compare to other samples as I was choosing the backsplash for my beach house. Although we are not yet at the point of intallation, this tile had the best color, quality and price of all I sampled. When I do place a large order for the backsplash, I will have saved $360 over the competitor's product.
