for decoration areas, yes. (like a living room entry wall to add decoration)

for utility areas where humidity and moisture are present,NO, and needs a backer board system. (like bathrooms and showers)

I concur.

Remember when tiling marble to use a thin set color that matches the predominate color on the tile.
IE:Light brown, white and off whites and all colors in this spectrum use white thin set.
Gray, black and darker colors use the gray thin set.
The reason for this is marble is a natural stone and the color of the bonding agent will bleed though over time..
Green marble requires and epoxy.
