The quarry was established in 2009, the mineral type is a Greywacke of the Ordovician Formation, the characteristic of the mineral is grey in colour with rich quartz veins and can be high in iron.
These characteristics create a durable stone with a sound hardness which weathers little over time, due to the rich quartz veins this generates a high polished stone value of 71%.
