On the outskirts of the neon lights and fast-paced gaming environment of the Las Vegas strip, Las Vegas Rock has been extracting gorgeous meta-quartzite stone since the 1930’s. Our stone has been applied everywhere from Frank Lloyd Wright’s designs, Bugsy Siegel’s original Flamingo Hotel, & Wilbur Clark’s Desert Inn. Our Rainbow Quarry is expansive, covering approximately 920 acres and sits outside Goodsprings, NV., which at one time was one of the largest mining areas in the U.S. The property itself differs from what most would envision of a typical quarry site.
Joshua trees and a preserved wilderness encompass this unique setting where material is being carefully extracted. On any given day you might see Wild Horses, Mountain Lions, and a plethora of other interesting wild animals roaming around. It was during the water conservation efforts in the 1980’s which led local residents to establish desert landscapes, as a result, the stone products from Las Vegas Rock caught on with local landscape designers. Meta-quartzite is a very hard, versatile stone that can be polished, honed, and utilized for a multitude of applications, even waterscap.
Las Vegas Rock, a Nevada Corporation, was formed in May 1991 to produce and distribute decorative stone and related products. The stone is quarried at the Rainbow Quarries near Goodsprings, Nevada, about thirty-two miles south of Las Vegas at the base of Mount Potosi.
The Rainbow Quarries were established in the Goodsprings Mining District in the 1930'. Las Vegas Rock owns And operates 320 acres of patented quarry land in addition to over 600 more acres of approved mining claims. The stone produced is a striated Meta-Quartzite, an extremely durable and colorfast stone. The quarry produces all of our boulders, crushed ground covers, flagstone, and cleave.
Las Vegas Rock has achieved a Cradle to Cradle Silver Certificate. We make every attempt to minimize our global footprint and to use 100% of the material that we extract from our quarry. Anyone who is building 'Green" or involved in a LEED project can benefit by using our materials and gain additional advantages by our Cradle to Cradle certification.
