Quarry

Finding a Q word is always a challenge.  Did some looking on wiki and decided on quarry. I know there are several quarries here in Kansas and many throughout our country.

This image really caught my eye "Rock of Ages" quarry in Vermont. Rock of Ages quarry is the  largest deep hole destination granite quarry. It is 600 feet deep and the water a milky blue.



Another quarry in Mt. Airy, North Carolina is the size of 66 football fields.

Pakistan is know for it onyx stone quarries and Spain for it's marble.

This stone was carved at Rock of Ages quarry, such expertise.

We Americans do love those marble and granite kitchen counter tops--most new homes come with such luxuries.

I have never seen anything like this quarry! It is like an artwork. The Jesus sculpture is beautiful.

Such a deep and gorgeous quarry! I have a hard time equating granite counters with granite mountains. If given a choice, I'll take a granite boulder for the yard. :-)
