This sample looks as though it is four separate tiles put together. Is this actually the look, or is it one tile that looks like four? I'm searching for one tile that is 12x12 or 16x16. Please advise.

Thank you for your interest in the MSI Rustique Earth Wall Tile. The picture shows you 4 different tiles so you can see the variations between the different tiles. Good luck with your project!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice tiles but... I purchased these tiles to add to some I already had from HD and Lowes. Did not really need whole tiles because I intend to cut them as subway tiles to mix in with my other ones, which is a good thing because 7 out of 10 were broken! I can't really blame Home Depot or the company these came from because these were shipped to my home and fault may be with the shipping. They were packed fairly well, but did not have a FRAGILE sticker on the box, which probably would have helped reduce the amount of broken tiles. I work for a package carrier, and I know first hand how heavy boxes are treated. If I needed whole tiles I would be very upset, but I will keep them and try to get as many cuts out of them as I can. There will definitely be more waste, but I need the color. My suggestion is to have them shipped to store for pickup, and also that the company start putting FRAGILE stickers on the boxes.

It's a beautiful natural stone with coloring variations within and between squares. Used for a fireplace hearth and matches the Rustique stacked stone panels I used for the front of the fireplace well. It's a pain to install though and I was glad I ordered a lot of extra. First, many of the tiles in the box were cracked or split, especially corners. We laid out all the tiles we had and sorted them for color and thickness and to have the chipped parts in cut off sections. They also are tricky to cut, tend to break or shear layers off so lost a few more there. The huge thickness variation between squares (and sometimes from side to side on a square tile) made it impossible to get a totally level floor and there are uneven seams, but my tile guy did a decent job of matching and said the variation is part of the charm of natural stone floors. We went with no grout and that seemed to work well. I did some leveling of the seams by taking a small hammer and chisel and carefully shearing off layers of stone, so where the height varied the variations were moved to be within the tile along natural looking tile layers, rather than having differences at the edges where tiles meet.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Happy with my purchase I knew they were not perfectly cut, since they are natural stone, but that is part of the look. I created a platform for a wood burning stove and I love it. Just take your time installing them and practice the layout first. None broke during shipping, but I gave it a 4 stars because I wish they were cut closer to the same thickness.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful when you are done Tricky to lay, thinner pieces are breakable. We've used this slate before. You must seal it with a stone sealer before grouting or you will be sorry. Lay the pieces out from several boxes to mix the colors before adhering to your floor. We used tiny, tiny, grout lines - we like the uneven lay of the floor. Looks awesome with a high gloss finish. At first we did matte, just doesn't bring the stone's beauty out enough. Once it's down and grouted, breakage is not an issue - except those occasional high corners due to size differences. They just wear down over time

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Something to be aware of... These natural stone slate tiles really do look nice, but... When I went to lay them I realized that they are all different thicknesses. I guess being a natural material that's understandable but it makes it extremely difficult to get a flat finished surface. With a lot of patience you can get a beautiful stone finish, but not for the faint of heart.

Slate matched even though it came from India. Originals came from China (I had the old box from the previous homeowner). About 10% were cut so inconsistent that they were marginally useable. Thicknesses vary greatly which made installation a bit of a challenge. This was important because of matching up with existing tile. Colors were slightly different but not to far off the installed tiles. Cutting was a breeze with my circular wet saw. Matching grout was the biggest challenge but it turn out great. Buy extras for broken or unusable tiles. Planning to seal and color enhance which make the tiles really pop with color.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful slate! Typical slate gauging that varies in thickness. This style (Rustic Earth) matches hardwood flooring very well. Zero breakage...tiles were strapped down sideways to a pallet with sideboarding and the shipping and handling was flawless. Squareness of tile was often 1/4" out of square, not Home Depot's fault. Installed on stairs (with hardwood bull nosing) and landing with no grout joint so squaring tiles was important, but also typical of natural stone product. Definitely recommend this product for its beauty and price...why the review is only allowing me to choose one star is more flawed than the slate. 5 stars!

I'd say nearly half of the tiles arrived broken, chipped, or fell apart as soon as I picked them up. HD will take back the broken ones and you can return whatever you don't use. As long as you plan for it and expect it, it's not the end of the world. Just make sure you order more than you need since you do need to mix and match tiles from different boxes to vary colors ad patterns and if you are short one case then you will be doing the last part of your project all from one box. These tiles are pretty difficult to work with if you're a first time DIYer. I've done tile work before but am definitely not a pro. I've never worked with natural stone before and honestly I struggled a bit with them. The natural stone lends to a lot of inconsistencies with size and thickness. Some have sides quite a bit longer than 12x12 and some quite a bit shorter. The thicknesses vary tremendously. This all makes it difficult to align corners and level the surfaces. They also break very easily, especially when making precision cuts. It can be frustrating and takes a lot of patience and planning but the end result is really spectacular. I've never reviewed anything ever on any site and felt compelled to do it here. If you're a first timer I would not recommend using natural slate tiles.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Slate Tile We are using this slate to put in a hearth for our wood burning stove. As with slate, there are variations in color and thickness. We just worked around the thinner pieces, using them for the wall work. I personally love the variation in color - you can be your own artist and set out the variations as you see fit. It is going to look amazing when done.

If you order less than a pallet, they ship the stone UPS. This is not too effective as lots of it gets broken in transit. If you are doing a small job, order twice what you need. You can return broken pieces and there will be lots of them. I did not compensate enough the first time, so I had to order again to get enough and that delayed installation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great product, poor packaging for shipping Love the slate. The color is exactly what I was looking for. The thickness could have been gauged a bit better but we're working with the differences and it's ok. The shipping crate however appears to have had a forklift fork go through part of it. A couple of boxes of tile were damaged. Seems like they should have had more buffer and the tile facing inward to reduce breakage and scratching.
