Crab Orchard Stone

Crab Orchard stone is a form of Sandstone that can only be found and quarried at the Cumberland Plateau in Tennessee. It is acknowledged for being a very hard stone, and high concentrations of silica make in the stone make it resistant to harsh weather conditions. Crab Orchard stone is most commonly recognized for its rose color, and traces of minerals like iron and magnesium give the stone a one-of-a-kind natural appearance. This stone is great for outdoor patios and fireplaces.
 
Crab Orchard stone is suitable for more exterior stone construction jobs. This type of stone has been used to complete hardscape projects like the Vice President’s mansion and Franklin Roosevelt’s pool at his Hyde Park residence. If you are looking for a unique, multi-purpose rock, consider using Crab Orchard stone.
