Many people select Italian marble blocks at Silvassa & get it cut into slabs. Silvasa marble market is on the outskirts of Mumbai, about 2 hour drive from Mumbai & is major hub for Italian marble in India.
Suppliers pick up a full block of Italian marble stone, they do this for living. Perhaps they are doing this since ages and have learnt it from their ancestors. They have financial capacity of taking the risk, they have proper arrangements for importing and agents to deal with all this and they have proper guys to get the whole thing cut it’s a whole system that they follow. Whereas an individual home owner doesn’t have all these privileges. In today’s time nobody has time to do all this. So you’ll just go see a group of silvassa marble slabs and book it.
