The Black marble is Nero Marquina. If you have a good enough supplier (like ourselves) we can actually be specific enough to the amount of white veining in the black tile. The thinner and narrower the white veining the more expensive it becomes.

Nero Marquina gets easily copied by cheap versions of China black. In the last attached images I show a picture of Nero Marquina on the left and China Black on the right, it is the stone like a child got hold of a white crayon and scribbled all over it :)

Now for the white tile, you want a really, really premium white based Italian marble. The only people that can produce and sell that for $7.00SF is The Builder Depot. Our premium white is called Carrara Venato 12x12" polished and is just $7.00SF: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/cavema12sutipol.html

Our premium Nero Maquina is $7.95SF: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/blk-12x-pol-prs.html

We could probably sell it for double the price like the retail competition but we are not in the over the top pricing business. We are just trying to make one beautiful Bathroom, Foyer or Hallway one shipment at a time. By producing the best natural stone in the world and selling it direct from quarry to consumer or contractor. One price for all. Visit us online for more information.

But this look is one of my favorites and as an employee at the Builder Depot I have lobbied hard to Build the largest collection of Premium Nero Marquina in the USA. In 2015 we will have it, with every size, mosaic and trim imaginable. Our Blackstone Collection is here: http://www.thebuilderdepot.com/blackstone-marble.html

@melpurser, It's a 19th century antique piece, according to the designer/homeowner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The black and white checkered marble flooring laid in a diagonal pattern is original to the house. The floor's polished finish and the antique bronze chandelier set an elegant tone that is matched by the rest of the house.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to See How One Feature Can Make a Room Captivating
So often the floors are something that fade into the background, asking to be covered by a rug. Not so with this vibrant black and white pattern. This classic color combination can be re-created in marble, tile or linoleum for any style room and any budget.
Sheila Schmitz added this to Drama’s Afoot With Striking Black Floors
Celebrate a classic. A black and white checkerboard floor is timeless and gives any room a smart edge. Here a glossy finish shows the look to full effect, while antique furnishings play to the design’s ancient history.
