If you can take one off, there may be a "serial number" or brand name and barcode on the back. If the tile isn't too old, you can search the web for a match. Although the lots are likely different and there will be small color variances, you may be able to find the same tile for sale somewhere.

Otherwise, like the other responders say - take out a few rows and make a pattern or "frame" with a complementary color or glass mosaic tile.
