Sprague Stone is a family–run business
Originally acquired by Sarah Smith in 1897, the quarry now operated by Sprague Stone has been a provider of buff-colored sandstone for over one-hundred years. Three venture partners from the Sprague family purchased the quarry in 1985, and it is operated today by Matt and Amanda Sprague.
What makes this stone so special?
Colorado buff sandstone works and shapes well with hammer and chisel, and has a smooth surface. The stone also has a high silica content, giving it a high sparkle.
What about breaking strength?
The stone tests between 20,000 and 25,000 PSI. The only stones to test stronger are granite and bluetop red sandstone.
What can I build with it?
Colorado buff stone can be used for a number of applications including foundations, wall veneers and sidewalks. Our customers have also used it for pools, fireplaces and custom mailbox enclosures.
