High Cascade Granite is quarried in the North Cascade mountain range of the Pacific Northwest. It is an igneous stone dark grey in color consisting mostly of quartz and feldspar. It is a hard, durable material and for stone sculpture it exceeds the test of time.
One of three largest deposits of igneous basalt on earth is located in the Pacific Northwest. It is a dense stone with a very fine grain and a high silica content. Very black in color and able to take a high polish makes it extremely desirable for large outdoor stone sculpture.
