Marble curb overlap amount for shower door

I'm installing a Marble curb overlap for shower door and and to cap a knee wall. I'm not sure of how far to overlap into the shower.
My idea was to go 1/2" out over the tiles.
Does this sound about right?

Thanks
James

Go with what aesthetically pleases you. 1/2" sounds about right....

Thanks, I wasn't sure if that was a bit too much or if I should go with more like 3/8".

I mostly use 2" Kerdi Board for curbs. Add tile thickness both sides and assembly typically nets around 2 3/4-3". My kinda standard for cap is 3 1/2" so you're right in the ballpark I think looks nice and trim.
