When you say marble to many people, they automatically think of it as an import from Europe, perhaps Italy, but this attractive and popular marble is 100% American and quarried  in Vermont—it’s the largest marble quarry in the world.
This domestic gift of nature has been extracted from the Dorset Mountain for over 100 years; a quarry that can yield up to 4,000 square feet of marble slabs each day. The size of the quarry is equally impressive with a 25-acre footprint and its depth stretches to an impressive 1 and ½ miles. This means the stone is perfectly capable of handling projects of almost any size and scale.
Danby has been used in many historical state and federal landmark buildings including the Lincoln Memorial and the United States Senate just to name a few. Danby marble performs exceptionally well because of its durability and low absorption. It is also a member of the U.S. Green Building Council and has a reduced-carbon footprint making it safe for the environment. The marble is also Greenguard Indoor Air Quality certified for low chemical emissions
