Rated 4 out of 5 by Foreman Good accent for rustic floor look.
Used this product as a border for dining room and kitchen. The main tile was a white-wash wood-looking tile. I am very pleased with the outcome as of this writing. It was just installed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lizanne Beautiful tile, installation a bit tougher than standard tile but well worth it
I love the way these tiles look once they are installed. I used them to enhance the wall my fireplace sits on and it looks fabulous. I could not give it a 5 star rating because I found that in several boxes there were 12x12 sections that were darker than the others. Instead of fretting I broke those pieces apart and used the stones to fill in gaps. Installation is tricky as these are not truly 12x12, the mesh the stones sit on are 12x12 and fitting the actual stones together takes time & patience. I laid them out on the floor and fit them together and carefully applied them to the wall fitting them together the same way they were laid out on the floor. Even with doing this, you still have to take additional stones and fill in gaps and sometimes have to break them to fit. Grouting brings it all together, though cleaning the excess grout is a bit of a pain. Definitely order a little more than you estimate your square footage to be. Despite the somewhat complexity of installing this, I'd do t all over again because it is quite beautiful.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JoniJay Used as interspersed with a porcelain tile on my bathroom floor and it turned out beautifully.
I installed this tile to look like a dry riverbed >within< an installation of Folkstone Sandy Beach porcelain 18". These two products look GREAT together, and Folkstone comes in a number of sizes and accent pieces. This bathroom floor looks totally amazing, The Indonesian stone mosaic is just beautiful, very natural, and also versatile, so I have plans to use it in a foyer and as a backsplash.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LA4333 Good product
We purchased this product for the bottom of a shower stall. The natural stone is very beautiful. The installation was somewhat easy too with the backing on the pebbles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Astrogal69 This tile is very, very cool!
A very unique tile, great for my mid-century modern bathroom remodel. Appears to be very durable and easy to clean. Feels great on the feet too! I love the way it looks.

Installation was difficult due to the not lining up easily.

Rated 5 out of 5 by gagne001 Easy for me to do on my own and beautiful
I put this tile in my 100 year old house's bathroom floor. Because not much is square, it worked great along the edges. I was able to get all the help and advice I needed from the tile guy at HD. It is darker than in the picture and much richer looking. I sealed it with two different types of sealers as advised. It is now glossier and extremely durable. Goes well with our farmhouse, am now thiinking about putting on the shower walls. I was advised to use a gray grout against my better judgement but am so glad I did. It works together so well and doesn't seem dull and gray at all. Just the right "pop". I'm sure that floor will remain for a couple of decades!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Davtom Looks great. Highly recommend
Overall, the tile looks great. After it has been cleaned off, it is a little darker than in the picture. The tiles fit together very well, so no seams show at all. It goes great with marble countertops.
Look at solistone.com for a better picture of what the final product will look like. Also, read install instructions on how to prep the stone. You will want to clean it off first, and also seal it before you put the grout on. It will help keep the haze off of the stone.
Make sure you have a good saw for this as well. You'll need one where the blade moves across the tile. It is difficult to push the tile across and keep in a straight line due to the irreguar shapes of the stone. I tried to use a bottom of the line saw, and ended up getting the "Husky7 In. Wet Tile Saw with Laser and Stand". It worked great. It saved me hours of time.
