Does anyone know where I can get the yellow tile pictured above?!

my contractor installed a shower saddle that is 5 1/2 wide, but there is a 1" overhang on both the inside of the shower and the outside of the shower. I think this is a tripping hazard. Is there a standard overhang (my contractor said there is always an overhang...but I've never seen one)? I feel he needs to replace the marble saddle (before the double sliding shower doors are installed) or add another piece of marble in and out. It still wouldn't be flush but it would only overhang by .25" instead of 1". Or is this installation normal/ok?

My contractor knew I wanted a large shower floor. I came home from Doc. office and found a large 5 inches tall by 6 inches wide shower curb which took up inches from my wider shower that I asked for. I am sure my contractor will say it needed to be that high and wide. I just had my master bath redone and it is half that size. What say you?
