Frequently Asked Questions:

  • How much does marble weigh?
    170 lbs per cubic ft.
  • What is the price for marble?
    Marble is sold by size, quality, and availability.
  • How do I figure how much the piece(s) that I need weigh?
    Measure in inches:   width x height x length = Total. 
    Divide total by 1728 to get cubic ft x 170 per cubic ft = approximate weight. 
    Example:  12” x 24” x 12” =  3456 divided by 1728 = 2 cu ft x 170 = 340 lbs.
  • Can I get a larger block cut into specific sizes?
    Yes.  Block is purchased seperately, it must be transported to another facility (Glenwood or Grand Junction).  Cost for cutting is provided by the facility.  All shipping is additional.
