The Quarry

Our Source For The Finest Quality Granite

We source our granite from the Rock of Ages quarry located in Barre, Vermont. Granite is cut from the walls in the form of large blocks, which are then transported to the monument plant. There it is re-cut, polished, and hand-crafted, resulting in a finished monument for the customer. The Buttura & Gherardi monument plant is where the process uses both machines and craftsmen to produce the finished product. Large diamond band saws and circular saws are used to cut the granite into the desired shapes and sizes. Polishing wheels of varying roughness are used to finely polish the surface of the granite, resulting in the smooth shiny appearance. Huge cutting machines finely cut the polished blocks into smaller sized pieces. From these smaller pieces, craftsmen finish the monument by hand with final cuts and polishing.
