    Is this floor slippery when wet? We are looking to put it in our mudroom where people will come from the pool to use the bathroom.

    I think the traction on natural stone has more to do with the finish than the variety of stone itself. I wouldn't use polished finish in the area you're describing -- it would be a little dangerous to run on with wet feet. In this space we used a travertine with what they called a "French Quarter Paver" finish, which is basically a thicker tile (3/4") with a tumbled finish and a lot of pitting. Because of all of that surface variation, the traction is pretty good. Good luck!
