Having difficulty with color. Should I stick with glass or mosaic

If that's your new countertop, it looks like it came off the same slab as the one placed in our dressing area last week. A replacement for our old cultured marble one, this one is granite (called "India Gold").

Although I hsd looked far and wide for another, more dramatic slab (from South America) I noticed this one standing right next the one I'd had my heart set on . . . and decided to go with it instead — mainly because I thought the colors in it were a better match for the vanity beneath it and cupboards on the opposite wall. BTW, they also are the same color as yours!!

The backsplash you show in your pic is much too busy for your countertop and the color conflicts. Pick one color in the granite and use that for your backsplash. Consider going with a back painted glass for your backsplash. It has many advantages such as no grout lines, very simple plus you can select any color to paint the glass (that's why they call it 'back painted glass') It is not busy at all so your granite will be showcased. Here are samples installed so you get an idea of what it looks like. Pic #1 might actually work in your kitchen because it ties back to the cabinet color, but I can't tell from here. The rest of the colors don't work for your granite they are here to show you variety.
You can even put the glass over different materials like wood veneers.

It's hard to determine without seeing the rest of the room. Consider taking more photos. A quick tip: glass tile tends to be contemporary style. Consider something a little more subtle in your approach than the tile in the photo.

What color choice and what type of tile would you suggest for the backsplash?

The tile you placed on the edge after my post is perfect in my opinion! The color blends well and if you use the right grout it will be a beautiful backsplash that complements your countertop. Its possible that you might prefer the same color I a ceramic tile rather than a glass tile. Compare the two. I think the color is right for your backsplash.

The example you posted above by Hardrock construction is not suitable (it doesn't even look good in that installation - too busy top with too busy backsplash and the colors don't coordinate).

You have a beautiful countertop. To best showcase it, don't put anything busy next to it.
