Questions & Answers

Asked by: lolo
The "Empirador Cafe' " (dark chocolate color with white and redish brown streaks) is the "dark" tile, and the "light" colored tile is "Crema Cappacino" (vanilla ice cream color with slightly darker shades).

It looks great and was inexpensive for marble, I'm guessing because it comes from China. We ended up with quite a few tiles that chipped on the wet saw, so you have to be careful that you're not cutting near where a vein meets the edge of the tile. Also we ended up with a couple that were cut thicker than the others and we didn't notice it until they were already on the wall. We were using a tile leveling system that has screw-down caps and we also had a couple tiles break when they were being tightened down. If I had to do it over again I would have picked something a little nicer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Amazing value, but lots of variation in color! Just bought this tile in store to redo my bathroom floor. It hasn't been installed yet, but the stone looks wonderful and higher class than porcelain or ceramic tiles. A big catch, however, is that you need to be very selective choosing the tiles because there is a lot of variation in shades. Some are really dark brown, some really light brown verging on gray, some with red marbling, some with almost no marbling, etc. So it's an amazing value, just be prepared to dig through the cases finding matching tiles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems at all. It has that million dollar mansion appearance. I installed a whole bathroom with this tile, shower walls and bathroom floor. One cracked tile separated as it was being cut with a wet-saw. Cut with wet-saw only. The store replace the broken tile with a good one. I am an amature at tile work and this product installed with great pleasure. I used "Sure-Bond Unsanded Thin-Set Mortar Mix" and "Thin-Set Mortar Admix" (a white milky liquid) NO WATER WITH THIS MIX. Enjoy your project! : )
