stone issue in shower

Hi folks
i done an install in 09
and had a call back to try sort out the issue with it.

it looks like the water/minerals has been causing the stone to break down and
appear really faded and course to the touch

on the outside of the shower its OK its in the wet area
the stone was
Valverde Azul honed 16 X16

you can see the difference on the threshold step
and where its been attacking the fill in the honed stone

any remedies one can suggest
