Heres an Opportunity to own Antique reclaimed Granite that came from the world famous Deer Isle granite, Crotch Island, Stonington, Hancock County, Maine.

$300 per slab, and measure 5’ to 8’ in length (we can provide a delivery quote)

Deer Isle granite solidified about 371 million years ago, as part of an extensive array of granites that formed during two periods of extension associated with the Acadian Orogeny. The rock on Crotch Island sat at the top of the magma chamber. Unlike other granites within the Deer Isle complex, the Crotch Island has few enclaves and no hornblende. It is one of the lighter colored of Maine’s granites, as well, due mostly to buoyant silicic minerals getting concentrated near the roof of the chamber.

Deer Isle Granite has been used in luxury homes across the world, as well as decorative material in building façades and monuments including Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts, Boston City Hall, The New York Stock Exchange, the Isaiah Wall at the United Nations, the memorial to President Kennedy at Arlington National Cemetery and even the new Yankee Stadium façade, United States Navy Memorial Washington, D.C. piers of the Manhattan Bridge, New York's Rockefeller Center, Brooklyn Bridge, the 20-foot, 8-inch bowl of the Oceanus Fountain at the Rockefeller family’s Kykuit estate in New York’s Hudson Valley; Sing Sing Prison; the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in Manhattan; and the Babe Ruth Plaza outside the stadium.
