Know of company that will buy old marble flooring?


We recently purchased a house that has marble tiling througout. It is old but in great shape, but is not our style. I was wondering if there are any ways to remove the tiles so that they stay in tact and if there are any contractors or buyers that will buy our marble? I don't know if such a thing exists. Thanks for any replies!

Marble is meant to stay down after installation.
It would be amazing to even get 1 piece up that is reusable, except for use as a mosaic.

Every time I tear up a marble floor, just for fun I try to salvage some. Once I got one up intact, but the back was full of thinset and would have taken alot of work to clean it up
