Why is my White Marble Turning Yellow?

Architectural Ceramics

Yellowing may still happen in a shower area where mud work or wet bed has been done using Gray Portland cement. One option is to use White Portland Cement with a low Akali content for the mud job; another would be to install a waterproof membrane, such as Laticrete 9235, on top of the mud. In conclusion, ensure if you’re going to install white marble or light stone use a white colored thinset and portland cement (or waterproof system).
