If I could rate this less than one star I would. Love the look of this 'tile' but it's not really tile, but rather stone. Because of this it is porous.
When it was time to grout we consulted with a Home Depot employee if it was necessary to seal before grouting. We were told "no". As we began grouting and within ten minutes wiping down that grout color was not coming off of the face of the tile. We scrubbed for nearly two hours but were left with an unsightly haze (some swirls because that's how the grout was applied in some places). I returned to Home Depot and spoke to the manager. While helpful (he gave me a product off the shelf that was a grout/haze remover that didn't touch it) there was nothing he could do. We consulted a real tile company who directed us to a professional. After many attempts with products that have worked in the past (including some acids and a sander) he was also unsuccessful.
We will have to tear out this tile. Thankfully it is just a backsplash behind a counter stovetop, but it is time consuming and costly. Needless to say we will NOT be using this 'tile' again.
To note, Home Depot has refunded us the cost of this time (which was not cheap). We feel the manufacturer should have some skin in this fiasco.

The is no protective layer on it so it was very porous. Stayed cold for a while bc I had to wipe down. And I wish that came with instructions because you’re supposed to spray them with a sealant before

Soft stone that works better with a wet saw. Highly recommend cleaning the tiles and sealing before placing them because the porous stone absorbs mortar and May leave marks. Very pretty tile.
