Hints On Stone Remnants

When looking for remnants, keep an open mind!

Instead of calling and asking if Emerald Pearl is available, go TAKE A LOOK at the remnants available. You might find a similar stone, an incredible deal on a super exotic stone or even change your mind.

Absolutely need a particular color? It's leg work and a little bit of luck.

Call around to see if the stone you are looking for is available. If it's NOT, leave your name, the name of the stone you're looking for, and minimum dimensions with the fabricator. Find local fabricators here.

Remnants are a great way to go for smaller projects.
