Hey ci-ndy,

Thanks for your question and welcome to the community!

Any natural stone mosaic tile, including your Grecian White tile, will only be as strong as the tile adhesive used to apply onto the wallboard.

Most pre-mixed tile adhesives will do the job, but one I prefer is shown below and linked here.


If you use this and proper tile spacers for the grout, you'll have a successful tile installation around your fireplace.

Let us know if you have any further questions,
Joseph
