Can anyone identify this beautiful stone backsplash tile?

HI everyone. I really love this backsplash tile in the photo below--it looks like some sort of stone--maybe a type of slate or quartzite stone? Can anyone help me locate it, or at least give me a name to look under? Boxerpups posted this beautiful photo for me, from her collection of inspiring photos, (she is so very helpful!), when I was asking about backsplash tiles several months ago. I then got very busy and put the backsplash on hold, but kept thinking about the backsplash in this photo. We are finally ready to make a decision and install the backsplash(after a year of going back and forth, LOL!) I think this is the look we are after, and that it would look great with our honey-spice maple cabinets and cream colored granite, which has grey and light gold streaks and speckles of garnet, which would seem to tie in with the colors in this stone. I also think it would look great and help tie-in with the brick fireplace in the adjoining family room. (what do you all think?)
Thanks in advance for any help!

It looks like the botticcino fiorito marble I almost chose for the master vanity. Very pretty!

HI. I am bumping this up to try again. I looked up the botticcino fiorito marble, that one poster thought it looked like, but from what I can see on the internet, I don't think that is it. Any other thoughts?

Falling Water Slate tile? Maybe the Desert Gold?

It looks like limestone to me.

Where did you get the photo? If the designers name is mentioned anywhere, you can email them and ask. I emailed the designer of my inspiration kitchen a few questions and she replied quickly. Let us know if you find out.

Could this be it? I found it on houzz.com. I attached the link.

Here is a link that might be useful: tile?

Thanks, Everyone!

I had wondered if it might be Falling Water slate(I had seen that tile on this forum months ago). I do like Falling Water,(though I've never seen in it person, only in photos.) However, I believe that the stones in Falling water are only either 1" or 3/4" high, and the ones in the "mystery photo" appear to have some larger ones in there. I would like some larger ones like that. Maybe I could call the company to be sure.
epressler--thanks so much for the link. I followed it, and fortunately, the photo had a tag (hover over with the mouse) giving the name of the supplier and of the stone!! How cool is that (don't you wish all those design photos did that!)So I googled, and I will put the link below to the tile supplier, Statements Tile, for anyone else who might be interested.
I think I may email the mystery photo to both those tile companies and just ask if it could be there stone!
Gigi- the photo came from Boxerpups' collection of design photos--as far as I can tell from her photo bucket album, there is no info from where it came!
Newchapter--I wondered about limestone,too. I will check into it.

Thanks eveyone, again.

I just ran across this one while looking for something else:

I don't think it's the exact same thing, but it is very similar. This is from a store in Indianapolis, and I will link the website below.

Arizona Tile has a Golden Gate quartzite stackstone. I used in as a backsplash and it looks amazing. They have pics on their website.
