Replacing Individual Tiles in Marble Backsplash...Possible??

10 years ago

We had a marble backsplash installed recently and unfortunately, the contractor that installed it did not have a very artistic eye. He used several tiles that I would have discarded (small cracks, off coloring, etc.). I'm kicking myself for not being there to watch him like a hawk but I had to go away for a business trip while the splash was going up and now, what's done is done (it's already been grouted and sealed). Is it possible to crack out an individual tile without damaging the ones around it? I have a lot of tile left over and would want to replace several of them. I know it's doable with ceramic but wondering how difficult it is with white carrara marble tiles. Anyone know? And what tools would I need if I attempt to DIY?
