White Quarry Splitface 12 in. x 12 in. x 10 mm Marble Mesh-Mounted Mosaic Tile

We bought the Tile above in the Title from H.D. The plans are to resurface the surrounding on our Fireplace. Right now there is slabs of marble that look terrible so we will remove and replace with tile. I believe that I just have to cut the mess to size and fit together. Where I have trouble understanding is the Grout portion. The Tile is very rough and I guess I dont understand if I even need to grout. I attached a photo of the tile for reference. Thanks.Name:  Tile.jpg

You don't grout this stuff, believe it or not. Here is what it will look like installed. I would NEVER install it in MY kitchen. It will attract all the dust, grease and liquid like a magnet. Cleaning it may be a booger, too.

Ok good to know. So just an adhesive behind it and peice it together as close as i can. And this will not go in kitchen. Also was about a a sealer? Needed or no because of location?

All the sheets will interlock very tightly as you install them. You can pull individual pieces from the sheet if you need to cut them for fitting around obstacles if you have any. Make sure your adhesive is not petroleum based, or the oils will bleed through.
