Can I use oxide ledgestone in the shower?


I am in love with the Oxide Ledgestone and I want to use in on one wall in my shower and was wondering if it could be used for a shower application?

I moved this to 'ceramic tile' for you---

Post a link to the manufacturer---I suggest you call the manufacturers technical help line---they will have the final answer---

Some things to consider when picking out any tile in a wet area.
Is it porous, and how am I going to clean it.
That type tile fails both questions.

Just in case you're not kidding, absolutely not. No, do not use that stone for an interior wall that gets wet.
