A rubber mallet is a large hammer that is made with a soft rubber head. This can be used to lightly tap the surface of the marble tile, in order to press it more firmly into the mortar. However you want to be careful not to tap too hard, as marble is a relatively soft material, and it can crack rather easily. You also want to avoid moving the tile as you are setting it.
