Hi -
The tile is basalt - called Lexington Grey Antigua - from ASN in San Francisco.
This exact stone is no longer available due to problems with the quarry but ASN has a substitute that is similar - and unless you were to put it right next to this tile, and even then, you might not tell the difference. The new version has slightly more blue in the grey. This one had slightly more brown.
Ask for Holly @ ASN. She is great.
Thanks for the question - and the compliment too.

Thanks for the question -- the rail cap material is western red cedar stained with a clear finish to match the clear finish on the Ipe bench.

Does this deck have a glass enclosure?

thanks for the question -- the answer is no - you can see the cables from the cable rail guard rail that is mounted on the outside of the wood framed rail -- but as this deck is in Palo Alto and the climate is quite benign - no glass was needed for wind and or other protection.
