Natural stone is a product of nature. No two tiles are exactly alike. Emser Tile recommends that a customer not purchase a tile based on the photo on this website. A customer should request a sample of the tile from their sales representative prior to making a final decision. Furthermore, Emser Tile requires that a customer inspects the purchased material prior to installation to check color, veining, thickness, sizing, and finish. Please ask for information on pre-sealing, sealing, and ongoing maintenance.
