botticino tumbled marble grout question

If anyone worked with this stone (it is almost white with some yellowish tint to it) what is the best grout color to use with it out of Mapei's palette. I was thinking "biscuit" on the chart - but have no clue if it looks like a chart in reality. If anyone used custom's grout with this stone shoot the name too.

Hi Andy,

The danger is in picking a color that is too light and that will show dirt easily. Being the world's worst decorator, that's about all I can offer.

Just used some biscuit on some tumbled,i also like Bonsal's buff, for noce tumbled,but it's prolly too dark for your botticino...the good thing is you'vegot many colors in your stone,so it's bound to blend in,like JB says, a little darker may be better.
