Note: Inspect all tiles before installation. Natural stone products inherently lack uniformity and are subject to variation in color, shade, finish etc. It is recommended to blend tiles from different boxes when installing. Natural stones may be characterized by dry seams and pits that are often filled. The filling can work its way out and it may be necessary to refill these voids as part of a normal maintenance procedure. All natural stone products should be sealed with a penetrating sealer.

Q:Where is this marble from?
by|May 31, 2020
3 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  This marble origin is Italy. There is a cheaper version out there that looks like this but it will carry yellow cast to it. Make sure to check the full name when purchasing. Side note. If purchasing make sure to get 1 extra box. Once you start putting them up there is only one direction they can lay due to the herringbone design. I absolutely love mine.

    A:  Thank you for your interest in a MSI product. Arabescato Carrara Herringbone Pattern 12 in. x 12 in. x 10 mm Honed Marble Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile is made in China. Good luck with your project.

                  A:  No, mine did change color when I sealed it. I used a light gray grout.

                  by|Apr 22, 2019

                    A:  It needs Stone Sealer. It is porous stone. It will absorb moisture and eventually stain.

                    by|Apr 21, 2019

                      A:  I have this on my shower floor and it didn’t change color when sealed.

                      by|Apr 20, 2019

                        A:  Thank you for your interest in a MSI product. Please contact a Professional Installer to check on the maintainability and suitability of this product for your project. Good luck with your project.

                        by|Apr 19, 2019

                          A:  No, it did not change the color of my tile. It does appear darker when it’s wet, but returns to the normal color in about 24 hours in my experience. I have this tile as my backsplash and as my shower floors.

                            Answer This Question

                            A:  We used this tile for the floor in a shower and sealed it. It probably wouldn't hurt to seal it for a backsplash.

                            by|Mar 19, 2019

                              A:  All natural stone tile should be sealed to prevent staining etc., but does it HAVE to be, no. Sealing is as easy as wiping the sealant over the tile with a towel, though, so it’s worth it.

                              by|Mar 17, 2019

                                A:  We used it for a shower floor, but our installer recommends that we seal marble no matter where it is, preferably once a year. He sealed ours when he installed it, but I didn't re-seal it since.

                                by|Mar 16, 2019

                                  A:  Yes, marble is porous, we did.

                                  by|Mar 16, 2019

                                    A:  Thank you for your interest in a MSI product. Arabescato Carrara Herringbone Pattern Mosaic Tile needs to be sealed before & after installation using a natural stone penetrating sealer. Good luck with your project.

                                    by|Mar 14, 2019

                                      A:  Yes, best to do it. I sealed it when I installed the backsplash 3 years ago once and still good today.

                                      by|Mar 14, 2019

                                        A:  Yes, you should always seal the grout, and this tile is a natural marble so you will want to,seal,it as well. It actually is pretty easy to,seal both at the same time. As a backsplash, it should only need to,be sealed every three or four years.

                                          Ahhh Marble !
                                          I used this herringbone mix of whites, greys and tans for a feature wall in my bath behind a freestanding tub. It was easy to install but fine cracks in tile didn't show up well under plastic packaging so numerous returns to not get tile with cracks. Like look with white grout.

                                            I used this tile on the floor of my bathroom as well as an accent in my shower. I love how it looks, I feel like I have a bathroom straight from Pinterest. The gray tiles look darker in photos than they do in person, but they look great either way. I used the herringbone tile as well as the Daltile Restore 3x12 subway tile with frost grout.

                                                    This tile turned out beautifully in our shower. We turned it so that each mat formed a diamond shape and didn't have to do any diagonal cuts but the pattern still looks great. It is a bit whiter than this picture shows but that was what I wanted. We used a high quality water tile saw and since we had turned the tile mostly had to just cut tiles in half. At the edges it was a bit more difficult because we had to cut smaller sections of the tile but we were able to piece together some section from left over tiles. We did not use spacers as the spaces in the mat were all different and we couldn't find any small enough to match the width of the majority of the spaces. We used the white grout from home depot that never has to be sealed which I would recommend doing (if it works, we haven't had it up long enough to tell) because you will have a lot of grout lines. I've attached a picture of our finished shower. Over all this was our first time attempting tiling at all and many people told us that this tile was too difficult but after turning the tile so that you don't have to do diagonal cuts it is actually very forgiving because of the complexity of the pattern.

                                                      I am building a new home and can not put into words the time I spent looking for tile. After my VERY expensive custom order tile did not work out - I desperately ran to home depot in search for something and couldn't be happier with the end result.

                                                        Beautiful backsplash
                                                        We used this as our backsplash in our new kitchen. It turned out beautiful! It adds a lot of visual interest without a busy look. Due to the small pieces, installation is complicated and slower than typical tile installation. Probably not recommended for a DIY novice, but it was well worth the effort.

                                                        I love this tile
                                                        This tile looks much more expensive than it actually is. I had it installed in our bathroom floor and in the shower niche with a smokey gray grout and love it. Returning extra tile to the store is just horrible. Mosiac tile is sold in the stores by the piece -- but online it is only done by the case. Just keep that in mind because it is nearly impossible to return whole pieces but less than half a case.
