Extracting nature’s beauty


Shades of white Danby marble, pinned deep inside the belly of the earth, pulsate magnetic charm. That is, until man gambles it all to extract these gems that spark fate to furbish institutions, embellish homes, enhance landscapes and memorialize with stoic elegance.

The Vermont Danby Quarry is the largest underground marble quarry in the world, stretching 1.5 miles into Dorset Mountain. It is truly one-of-a-kind.

Few get to see the unforgettable beauty of the quarries, and even fewer embark on a journey to extract the perfect stone and tailor it with both imagination and exquisite craftsmanship.
