This is a hard tile to keep clean. If I had to do it over again ( and I might ) I would not use black. It shows anything that gets on it.

Answers

There is no technical reason why they could not be set with edges touching but they are not perfectly square so I used a dime to create the smallest gap possible and used black grout to make it look as though they were touching. I cut them using a circular saw blade made for ceramic tile. Just go slow and use water as a lubricant. Check your box(s) at the store as I had several broken tiles when I picked them up at the store.

I did my kitchen floor with these. They are exactly what I wanted. They look fantastic. But, if you stand over them, there seems to be a cloudiness under the shine. I’m still looking into refinishing options to sed if it can be fixed.

Beautiful granite, but no tiles came with polished edges. We were installing the counter-top and had to look for someone to polish the edge on those that would be visible as we didn't have a system for polishing. An additional expense and time factor. Recommend the advertisement also include this information.

These "granite" tiles are actually gabbro by composition, which is a close cousin if basalt! Nevertheless, they are similar to granite for the properties that are required for flooring and walls (e.g., durability, cutting, installation) . The tiles from HD are better quality, more consistent, and look nicer than those from other vendors. And as an added bonus, they were a bit less expensive than anyone else. We purchased 15 cases to redo our counter tops. I cannot truly begin the install as I need to wait for warmer weather because all tiles that are along the edges will be beveled and polished using water and is an outdoor project. Enclosed pic shows "dry" fitting.
