This is my 4th try at getting a tile in the price range I wanted. I couldn't seem to find one that was deep or actual black from Home Depot, but this one hit the mark! Although having a little debate with my UPS delivery dispatcher, because of the 60LB weight per case (Feels like a condensed star), the packages were delivered and came very protected (no tiles even chipped). I have not installed it yet, but the tile itself is beautiful. Love the slightly beveled edges, the even cuts, and the shiny slick deep black surface. I have been testing a few on my kitchen counter and they do great with cold and super hot water, no stains and very easily cleaned. Before I saw this tile I was just considering getting cement or porcelain tiles, but real granite is always better and makes a huge difference for look and resale value.

If I were buying this tile for construction purposes I give it high marks, however I buy your 12x12 and 18x18 for my laser engraving business and I laser etch photos and plaques into them. With that being said I find the tile to be extremely inconsistent in how its made. Some tile I receive are perfect and engrave great word plaques others have way too many "flakes" when I remove the top glossy coating to expose the stone and it can not be used for photos. Between 12s and 18s I have purchased over 2 hundred tiles for my business, but I now have too find a new supplier for photos. Also this last batch of 18x18 was almost 1/4" out of square.

Best Purchase I Made
I am extremely pleased with this product. When I decided to get it I was told it would not be good to use in the kitchen or laundry room. I love the rich look this absolute black granite tile adds to both the kitchen and the laundry room. It is the best choice I made.

Great product for my artistic vision !!!
The black granite is a highly durable product that I can use creating various art. I own a Co2 Laser engraver which enables me to engrave practically anything from photographs, logos or just plain text.
