What is the recommended procedure for
installing and finishing natural stone tiles?
Stone tile installation is the same as that recommended for
acrylic modified thin-set mortar (white for light colors; grey
for darker stones)
For larger stones
use larger trowel, check the Tile Counsel of Americas for proper

micro-pores on the stone's surface, it is advised to pre-seal
before grouting. One recommendation would be
Sealer's Choice, by Aqua Mix, but final selection might
depend on the specific area of usage
