While we were visiting these two amazing sights this summer I began to wonder: What would this granite look like on my countertop? After all, the stone appears so white. Is it a white granite? Well no not at all.
I was looking like a hawk for a stone from Mt. Rushmore. I wanted to get a stone from the debris field but it just wasn’t possible from the main area. However I was able to get a nice piece of granite from the debris far on the side of the mountain. While we were visiting the Crazy Horse museum for a small donation you can bring one of the rocks from the mountain home with you. I picked up the largest stone in the pile.
This piece of Granite is from the Crazy Horse Debris field. I decided this will be the perfect stone to do some work on.
So lets take a look at the progress as I cut the stone down.
I think its really cool that this stone is starting to look like an arrow head.
