Quarry – The Stone

Weatheredege Limestone Quarry

(Colonial Brick and Stone Inc. quarry on Manitoulin Island)

     Our 1200 acre quarry is located on Manitoulin Island. The stone is a light grey to white color and has a natural weathered face. This stone works beautifully for waterfall stone and landscape stone. We also manufacture 7 types of thin stone veneer from this stone. To see pictures of the veneer, go to the “limestone thin stone veneer” section.
