I was so excited to have this tile as my kitchen backsplash...I have black polished granite countertops and I can't replace them with marble as I wished to, so I compromised and ordered these. In the box, they were bright white and I could see the veining and loved them. On the wall, not so much. Many of the tiles just look gray and there were a few that were so white they stand out like a sore thumb after installation. It was difficult for my husband to install (he's a very experienced DIYer) and overall, I am not happy with how gray it looks and how little true veining of marble one can see. I saved two tiles that had good veining (the only two in four boxes) to install at the sides of my sink so I could at least see those every day and have attached a photo. Overall I am not all that pleased with this purchase as I wish the tile had a true look of marble and it was pricey. I am happy with the overall design of the kitchen (see photo) and the tile goes well with the other decor I chose, but I would have loved to see more veining and a true marble look.
