removing glass 4x4 tile

we have recently built a new walk in shower. problem is I had 2 boxes of 4x4 glass tile in the house while under construction. One for upstairs one for my beautiful new walk in shower. the day the border was being installed the tile setter was working in one room the helper in the ensuite. 4 hrs later he went on and saw that the helper had installed the blue tile instead of the gold/brown....YIKES!! now that I have gotten over bawling my eyes out for a week we need to remove this gawdy tile>>?? yuk!!

they are 4x4 glass tile that have mastic on back and are completely surrounded each one individully with grout as there is a non glass one beside forming a diamond border around entire shower.

Is there anyway to remove only the blue and leave the 4x4 travertine in tact?

Why would you worry about it? It was done incorrectly and the contractor will have to fix it to specifications at no cost to you. Leave it up to the General to handle it, and accept only what you laid out in your contract and specifications.
