A remnant is a piece of stone that is a left over from a larger granite countertops project.
Slabs come in bundles of 6 or 7. Big blocks of stone are taken from quarries and each block is sliced by diamond gang saw into 42 to 45 slabs that are of 1 ¼” thick.
The consecutive 6 or 7 slabs are then packed together and called a bundle.
Generally, these slabs will all look alike so that they can be used together for countertop projects.
Once all slabs from a bundle are utilized for different projects, we are left with partial slabs or random sized small pieces that can’t be used for bigger projects.
The result is a pile of orphan pieces called remnants.
At Arch City, we put these leftover pieces to the side and offer them at greatly discounted prices to sell them fast.
Granite Remnants Shapes, Sizes & Color
Remnants come in all different shapes and sizes and in variety of colors. Some of those remnants are from very high price point colors.
The price will be very high if you have to buy a full slab. But these very expensive countertops become very affordable when available as remnant.
They are perfect for small projects like bathrooms, laundry rooms, or small bars, fire place surrounds, coffee tables etc.
