Marble 2" hex install question

Does anyone do anything prior to installing marble hex that comes glued on a mesh backing to improve it adhering to thinset?

I'm installing a 2" hex on mesh. The tile comes from Castelli Marble out of Clevelant Ohio. Im cutting it on a small tile saw and no real issue ungluing. If you leave a cut piece in a bucket of water it does slowly fall apart.
Some tiles seem to be coated with more glue than others.

My concern is the glue acting as a barrier inhibiting Laticrete 254 platinum from adhering to the tiles.

Any tips or thoughts would be appreciated.
