This was purchased about 5 years ago, so the run would not be the same now. You could try a few different limestone varieties from Walker Zanger - they have a lovely selection.

It's a standard 12 x 12 tile, so 1/4" thick.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lawrence Karol added this to Expert Talk: Lean or Hang Artwork?
Take a modern approach. "I actually leaned the art because the client wasn’t sure if they were going to purchase it or not," says Mark Newman of Mark Newman Design. "However, in some cases, I do like a leaning installation — it makes a room feel more approachable and less stuffy. In a contemporary environment, it’s especially easy for art to become really serious, and this takes it down a notch and makes it more approachable."
