Removing marble panels?

I need to remove cultured marble panels from a shower. I hope to save these and re-install after I complete some plumbing work. Any suggestions on how to remove them?

These are about half-inch thick panels, 3 feet by 6 feet, and are attached to greenboard with dots of caulk every 8 inches or so.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!

Of course you will booger up the greenboard, but placing a flat blade like a 5 in 1 behing the panel, and gently prying and shimming as you go, it will release. Once the panel is released, you will have to clean the glue off the back before you reinstall. I think it is worth the extra effort to save the panels, so be careful in your prying.
