Stone tile on the floor requires a very rigid substructure. More so then ceramic tile. I have no idea what, "5/8 lp tophotch 450" is. The 1/2" ply is inadequate as a subfloor. Whether you can put stone down depends on the joist system size, spacing and span, as well as the proper subfloor setup.
To make your posts more readable it would help if you traditional English and not a texting format.

Still no response except, "any help" .

Check a deflection table with the components you have and see if it's up to the task of a stone floor. The John Bridges forum might have one.

Without knowing your deflection rate, you're just guessing. It could be an expensive lesson if you guess incorrectly.
