Offer 3We are mainly into granite tiles & slabs in all Indian colors, blocks only granite from our own quarries, cobblestones & pavers (used for landscape & commercial projects) also from granite of our own quarries only. We also have good direct contacts for slate & limestone tiles & slabs. Other products & services we can offer directly through our infrastructure are granite cut-to-size slabs, vanity tops, special size tiles like 3ft. x 1ft. x 10mm, etc., granite engraving & inlay work, customized granite furniture & tableware.
We can work out the pricing for you in a couple of days along with shipping rates, etc. As we are based in NY and now in DE also, you don't need to worry about making payments to India. You have to deal with us locally and we'll arrange everything for you. We will get the stuff for you, take care of the shipping, customs, etc. and you will have to pay us locally in USA. I'll give you an offer within a couple of days and in the meantime if you can give me your contact information in USA, I can send you some samples. 
Please also clarify that the sizes are 10 inches x 7 inches x 4inches for cobblestones & 9 inches x 4 inches x 4 inches for stones...if not please mention the sizes clearly
Size is correct (10 to 11" x 7 x 4) for driveway curbing. Gray is prefered color. Timing is not critical but would like to obtain before December. Quantity is 1600 pieces minimum.  I can be reached at (434) 52.......
The prices for Grey Cobblestones are as under :
10" x 7" x 4"        ..........    US$ 0.64 per piece        (100 pieces in 01 Ton)
  9" x 4" x 4"        ..........    US$ 0.55 per piece        (200 pieces in 01 Ton)
Will get the freight prices in a couple of days. But the freight for a 20 ft. container to New York is US$ 1800.00. To Port Charleston is US$ 1950. The prices quoted above are FOB Indian Port. You can do the inspection at our quarries in India. Payment would be 25% advance alongwith order and balance 75% against documents in USA. Since we are based in USA, we don't need an L.C. from you. 
If you have a big requirement break bulk cargo would reduce your freight cost. We can also give you cobblestones in White, Pink, Red and Cream. All of the colors will have small black speckles. If you want I can send you polished samples of these colors, which would give you an indication of the color. Thanks & have a nice weekend.
