Granite Obelisk Project

Our company's long experience in quarrying granite eased its nomination for participation in a fascinating learning project in collaboration with NOVA, America's most watched science series on television. The brief for that project was simple; demonstrate firsthand how ancient Egyptians manufactured obelisks and raised them using only materials and techniques used by our ancestors. Our skilled workers chiseled out a long sliver of red granite into an obelisk. The research team experimented with several hypotheses for raising the obelisk on a smaller 2-ton obelisk carved for that purpose. The obelisk carved for this project stands today in front of the Egyptian.
