Rocks On - Hard Surface Solutions  offers the Bluestone Avantgarde porcelain stone tiles.

Each piece has an ideal and non-reproducible depth effect, which creates a fine interplay of shades ranging from black to different tones of grey. The typical veins and crinoids of the stone truly root in the material surface.

Suitable applications for Bluestone Avantgarde porcelain stone include commercial and residential indoors, including office buildings, restaurants, galleries, living areas, kitchens, bathrooms, floor and walls (with lamination and various edge detail finishes being achieved).
