WHERE OUR GRANITE IS SOURCED
SECURED VAST RAW MATERIAL RESERVES
Williams Stone owns four quarries possessing substantial reserves so we will never run out of the granite you specify. Our Chester Gray® and Old Berkshire® quarries in East Otis, MA have decades of granite still to be quarried. Our Carlton, Georgia property is the site of two quarries that produce our most popular granites: Williams Blue SkyTM and Moonlit Rose®, which according to the USGS, sit on a vein of natural granite estimated to be over 35 miles long, two miles deep and seven miles wide.
QUARRIES - EAST OTIS, MA
CHESTER GRAY® & OLD BERKSHIRE® GRANITE
The Chester Quarry at our headquarters and fabrication operation in East Otis, Massachusetts, is the source of our beautiful Chester Gray®, known for it's stately dark gray granite frequented with mild white waves, that is tightly grained showing sharp contrasts between finishes. Our multiwire saw can cut granite without explosives resulting in higher yield, higher quality blocks and no blast cracks.
Adjacent to the East Otis operation is our new Old Berkshire quarry where we have been extracting Old Berkshire® granite, a brownish gray to brown stone with large wavy grain that is proving very popular as dimensional stone for wall stone, paving and landscape amenities.
LARGE INVENTORY FOR TIMELY SHIPPING
We pride ourselves on maintaining one of the country’s largest inventories of standard granite curbing and large granite blocks ready for fabrication. This allows our knowledgeable support staff to schedule prompt delivery to your job site, often within just a few days, so you can meet your critical installation deadlines.

WILLIAMS BLUE SKY GRAY® & MOONLIT ROSE® GRANITE
Our Carlton, Georgia property is the site of two quarries that produce some of our most popular granites: Williams Blue Sky Gray and Moonlit Rose. These quarries sit on a vein of natural granite which has been estimated by the USGS to be over two miles deep and eight miles wide.
Williams Blue Sky is a light gray, tightly grained stone having consistent color and exceptional splitting characteristics. Moonlit Rose is a buff to light pink, tightly grained granite with infrequent black and white waves. It is very popular for ornamental curbing, dimensional stonework, landscape amenities and paving applications.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PRODUCTION AND TRANSPORTATION
The raw material from our Georgia quarries is shipped to our East Otis facility by rail rather than via truck, meaning our granite is an even greener alternative to competitive products like concrete or asphalt. As the national demand for Williams Stone Company’s high quality gray granite curbing and landscaping products continues to grow, we've established a network of transportation companies to ship our products anywhere in the 48 contiguous United States at competitive prices.
GRANITE CURBING – ALL NATURAL, FOREVER.
We are also proud that our entire East Otis, MA production facility is powered by the clean, renewable energy produced by the 600 kW wind turbine we installed in 2009.
