HELP! Does this grey tile go with my quartz countertop?

Hi. My kitchen is almost done, except for the backsplash. I'm having a hard time deciding on the tile. My countertop is Corian Calcutta Natura. It has veins of grey with thin brown edges. My cabinets are alpine white (true white) by Homecrest.

Is the grey tile too dark? It's the first grey I've found that isn't too blue or too green when next to the countertop. I just love the tile, but I'm worried it will look even darker when on the wall and not in direct sunlight. If you have it in direct sunlight at just the right angle, it looks almost identical to the color in the countertop.

I'm going to do a herringbone pattern, and I'm thinking of white grout. Or should I do the same color grey grout?

Any help or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated. I'm just at a complete loss and in a bit of a panic.

I've attached a pic of the countertop, floor, and tile for reference.

Thanks so much!!! :)

PS... walls are SW Accessible Beige.
