Thanks Dave. No info sheet and general info on website. Tile is Daltile urban camouflage that we got from home depot. They weren't much help...big surprise...so should we use a standard adhesive, or is there something more appropriate we should use for the glass tiles?

Most glass requires a good modified thinset.

I used sanded grout with my "urban camo" tile... no problem. Used regular versabond thinset but I only used them as accent tiles. The one thing I noticed is that it takes a lot longer for the thinset to set up with the non absorbent tile.
