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 waterscape.
