When a large stone slab is cut to make your custom shower wall or countertop, what happens to the small pieces of stone that don’t make the cut? These beautiful “leftover” pieces of stone are called “remnants,” and they don’t go to waste. Natural stone remnants are actually in high demand by designers and other creative people with great ideas about how to use them.

Stone Empire has more than 1000 Stone Remnants in stock from Granite, Marble, Quartz, Quartzite, Soapstone, Caesarstone, and many other quartz brands, ideal for Vanity Tops and small projects. Most remnants are viewable in our warehouse at 1718 Fairway Dr, San Leandro, CA 94577. You may purchase the remnant as is, or have us fabricate and install it for you.”
We hope to inspire you to use these gorgeous, environmentally friendly stone remnants in a variety of ways.

We make buying a stone remnant simple. Stone Remnants are ideal for small projects, such as vanity tops, fireplace surrounds, bar tops, and any other small countertops around your home or business. You could save as much as 80% buying a stone remnant compared to buying a full slab.

Ideas for Large Remnants

Not all natural stone remnants are very small. Often, rather large pieces will be left over after an installation. This is a great opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind piece of furniture and bring luxurious natural stone into every room of the home. Large stone remnants can be used for:

  • Tabletops
  • Kitchen islands
  • Bar and buffet tops
  • Vanities
  • Windowsills
  • Outdoor Kitchens

Ideas for Small Remnants

The possibilities are endless when it comes to small, and even very small, natural stone remnants. Because natural stone is naturally beautiful and unique, you can use a small remnant anywhere in the home. Here are some exciting ideas for these “leftover” pieces of stone

  • Serving and cutting boards
  • Mosaic backsplashes and accent strips
  • Coasters and trivets
  • Decorative objects
  • Plant stands
  • Stepping stones
  • Mosaic walkways and stairs
  • Mosaic stair raisers
  • Coffee tabletops

Our Remnant Slab Buying Process


Browse online through our extensive selection of natural stone remnants such as Granite, Marble, Quartzite, Soapstone, and engineered stone such as  Caesarstone, Cambria, Q Premium, Corian Quartz, and Viatera. Sort by size, color, type, and brand to narrow down you selection. Try to find a Remnant that is close to the size you need. If you like a stone which is much larger than what you need, give us a call. If a remainder of the remnant is large more than 36″, we may be able to cut the remnant and charge you only for the size you need. All of our Stone Remnants are group in price A through F, and X1, X2, and X3. The higher the letter the more expensive the stone remnant will be. Granite Remnants in group A, B, and C will be the least expensive


We welcome you to visit our showroom in San Leandro, CA to see and inspect the remnants in person. We encourage you to come and see natural stone remnants, as each piece of Granite or Marble Remnant is one of a kind. Engineered stone remnants, such as quartz and ultra-compact stone could get selected from smaller samples, as variation between the sample and remnant is minimal. You may call us or go online to make an appointment. Our showroom and warehouse in San Leandro, CA is open Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm, and on Saturdays from 9 am to 4 pm
