What is the Supply
The market supply of cut gneiss stones from Ivailovgrad is in standard sizes: the width is fixed, and the length is by the customer’s desires. Most often, the width of the stones is from 5 cm-10 cm to 30 cm, as the requirement for circumcision states that the stones should have at least two parallel sides and right angles. Based on the wish of the client, they can also be cut in size. The thickness of the slabstones in one pallet (this is the unit they are usually sold in) is identical with very little deviation. When putting the facing stones, it is important that they are of approximately equal thickness. Thus, if you buy more than one pallet, you need to track whether the thickness of the stones in all pallets is the same.
