Madison Gold crushed granite, comes from one of the oldest quarries in the valley. It is our most popular decorative ground cover. Being a light tan color it blends well with the desert environment. The small amounts of mica flecked through it causes a sparkling effect in the sunlight.
Madison Gold is a hard and durable granite which creates a clean, easy to maintain, natural looking landscape. Being a native mined material, this decomposed granite will have color and shade variation.
* Madison Gold has changed color over the years. It seems to be more grey.
With color changes occurring over a period of time in the mined vein, exact matching of existing granite may not occur.
