White marble tile backsplash looks grey when installed?

November 13, 2019

In the middle of having backsplash installed in my kitchen. It's a honed 3 x6 white marble subway. Unfortunately, the tile looks darker now that it is on the wall. Installer says that the thin set is wet and being absorbed by the tile, making the tile look darker and that it should dry out and lighten. I'm hoping so but have installed marble before and don't recall this happening before. Right now, the color is totally off and the tile totally is changed from what came out of the box. Anyone have experience with this?
