I was curious about the new porcelain slab, so I went to check it out today. Very pretty! Here are my pictures:

Those look amazing. How is the pricing?

Not exactly sure. The stoneyard won't give slab prices to customers. You can only get the cost through an installer. I can tell you that they are probably fairly expensive. They were three stars, which is the same at Quartzite. I think four stars is the highest cost.

Beautiful! Regarding the Calacatta, is each slab different?

We got an estimate for Neolith "marble" and the least expensive was a whopping $125/foot. We've decided to look at other alternatives. It does look great!

The Calacatta has six slabs - 4 random patterns and 2 bookends.

Neolith is a completely different product, right? This is porcelain. Just like the tile, but made into big slabs.

ETA: Is Neolith ceramic slabs?

Looks like a neat product. Is it very thin? If used as a countertop, how do they handle the edges?

It is 6 mm, so definitely thinner than traditional countertop materials. I realized I forgot to ask about the edge after I left. I'll try and remember to call this week.

Personally, I'm not an "early adopter" so I don't think I would use it for a countertop. I would be worried about chipping. I do think it would be a great option for a backsplash or flooring. I guess time will tell!

I would love to use that for a backsplash. I'd hate to have to buy a whole slab though. I saw this other tile last week which also looked pretty realistic. It's called Marvel and it comes in different sizes, the largest being 30x30. It looked fantastic on the floor of their showroom. I'm thinking of that for my bathroom.
