Slate will vary greatly from piece to piece. It is strongly recommended to seal all natural stone. Good sealers provide a window of a few seconds for cleanup. Sealers do not prevent 100% of damage due to spills. Please follow the sealing manufacturers guidelines on how often a sealer should be reapplied.

          We had bought this before to do tile work on a table. We wanted the slate to match what we put on our table. It was ok. Three pieces had a lot of orange in them. We put them on the side of the hearth we were remodeling. Worked out great.

          Be aware that some slate has natural fractures at partial thickness. Order 15% extra for this reason. Once properly installed with concrete board underlayment, this will not be an issue.

            You have to love slate to love this tile. If you do, these 16" tiles look great with a 1/8 charcoal grout line. Mine were laid on a slab of concrete. A high gloss sealer really helps tie it all together. I used two coats as these tiles are porous. My tiles ranged from pretty light to dark. My wife hid most of the dark ones under the fridge, stove etc. We are very happy with the overall floor. Very few tiles arrived broken.

            There were no reviews for this so I hope this helps. I needed to tile a small kitchen (7’ x 12’). The recommended 1.2 multiplier is not correct for these tiles. I went with a 1.5 muliplier and it barely worked out. The reason it just worked is that about 10 to 15% of these do not look at all like the pictures. They are just smooth grey stone with no features. Another 10% had variegation that made the tiles very fragile and prone to cracking. I had to replace 3 tiles after install due to cracks going all the way through the tile. It is difficult to prevent cracking because the back of the tiles are not flat. That means you need 80% coverage with the thinset on the back of the tile. Any voids will be weak. The tiles also are not uniform in size, they vary +/- 1/8”... You have been warned... I used a new diamond blade in the tile saw. I had no issue with chipping, even on very thin cuts. Also, the top surface of the tiles is not flat and smooth. It makes grouting dificult because the tiles do not create a uniform flat top surface. Be sure to sort all of the tiles before you start. I also placed and numbered each tile to ensure it went back in the same positon as the dry fit. The final result was truely amazing. The look and feel of uneven slate is perfect in the kitchen. I sealed the floor after finishing but I would recommend sealing the tiles before instal.

              I ordered 20 pieces and received 2 boxes of slate. I did not open the boxes prior to driving 150 miles into the mountains to our cabin because the boxes were nicely wrappen in a foam packaging. When I began laying the tile, I realized each box only had 9-pieces instead of the ten I ordered, and one box also had three 3-broken tiles. I was unable to complete the job and will need to go back in a few weeks with the additional tiles to finish the job. However, the person I called in customer service was very helpful and replaced the missing and broken tiles.

              Hello Frank - We apologize for the inconvenience regarding your Rustic Gold Slate delivery. Slate is a natural stone product and is often different from piece to piece. If you would like to try again, we would be happy to discuss those options with you. Please email Natalie Alvarez with your order information at NatalieAlvarez@emser.com so she is able to assist in a resolution. Emser

              Based on my experience with this I would say don’t buy it. I ordered 30 tiles and needed 28 for the job. Seven tiles were broken in the box. I happened to have 5 leftover from another job, so I ended up having barely enough. These need a piece of foam between each tile. I would say a manufacture issue, not a Home Depot issue.
