I am currently having a home built and need an answer to a question.

The master bathroom will have cultured marble for the shower walls, bathtub and counter tops. We ordered a color called "Bone" (an off-white color with a cream/beige cast). What is currently being installed is an off-white, but with a grayish cast. When we told the builder that this does not match the color we had selected from his samples, he told us that the cultured marble has not fully cured yet, and that once it does, it will turn to the proper shade of beige/cream color.

What I would like to know is, is that a true statement, or is the builder just handing us a line and we will be stuck with this "grayish" color marble?

Thank you.
