Initially, it looks like a surface that’s not polished fine enough rather than anything to do with sealer. But I know it’s tough to take super sharp pictures of granite polishing.

It sounds like you’re installing this marble on cement board. And the simple answer would be to install it with the same mortar you’ll be installing the tile with. But before we go too far, it also...
