Granite and Mica Landscape Boulders

Granite and Mica Boulder

White and Pink granite with black mica veins

Landscaping with boulders can add great appeal to the design of your landscape. In fact boulders and rocks are one of the most common accents used by professional landscaping artists in their design.

Pezzetta Stone has thousands of boulders in all shapes and sizes. The white grey and pink boulder with black mica veins (pictured here) is a great addition to any landscape. These boulders come from deep beneath the earth of  Wilbraham Mt.  in Western Massachusetts. They are extremely rare boulder that are produced by the blasting of ledge-rock for the purpose of residential construction.

What makes our boulders so rare is the high volume of black mica infused into granite. This particular rock formation can’t be found anywhere else on the planet. In addition, the lands where these boulders are mined are diminishing quickly due to urban development.

In the close-up above, you can really see the pinks and greys. The black  mica veins are abundant in our rocks and they really glisten in the sun. When they are wet or sealed with a stone sealer, the colors pop even more!

We are currently supplying our boulders to east coast landscaping professionals from Massachusetts to New Jersey. If you are looking to beautify your garden or yard,  give us a call for quote. Our prices are competitive and are determined by quantity, size, and shipping costs.
