White is Definitely Not Black!!!!
I ordered 15m3 of this tile, through my local Store. The staff there were very helpful, knowledgeable and assisted greatly throughout the ordering and purchasing process. They gave great advice on how to treat, lay and look after this material. They really could not have done a better job. They pointed out that there would be certain colour variations and we joked about 50 shades of grey. All Good.
Then the tiles were delivered. To call these tiles Honed Black Slate is frankly misleading. The slates in the store and the ones on the website are obviously going to show more uniformity than what would be delivered. I accepted that and expected a certain amount of variation from nearly black to a dark grey, however the range of colours that actually arrived was unacceptable. This was not just colour variation but a variation in colours, which ranged from dark grey to virtually white, with just about every shade of grey in between!!!
I purchase the tiles knowing full well that they would be colour variations but I didn't expect them to be different colours completely from each other. The tiles were returned and to give Topps their credit they accepted the return with no fuss, although I am still awaiting my money back 3 days later, eventhough I paid them initially by bank transfer.
If you are looking for a tile that is generally dark in colour do not buy these, if however you are wanting a patchwork of colour then these will suit you fine.

Gorgeous natural slate tiles
I have just had this tile laid in my kitchen and bathroom and can highly recommend it as the perfect way to add a natural feel to a fairly clinical space.
The natural colour changes in the tiles are stunning. The only problem is with the grouting as the edges of the tiles are quite rough and on some tiles it is more noticeable than others.
