Sustainability

The Danby Marble Quarry is famous for producing exquisite marbles with exceptional performance and durability. Recognized as the most prestigious white marble in North America, Danby Marbles are featured on many historic landmarks including the Lincoln Memorial, US Senate Building and many other federal and state buildings. Located in Danby, Vermont this 100 year old quarry is the largest underground marble quarry in the world. The quarry's 25 acre footprint and 1-1/2 mile depth offers capacity of 180,000 cubic feet per year offering the ability to accommodate the needs of almost any size project.


Green Aspects

Vermont Danby Marbles are both extracted and processed within the quarry. This unique combination allows for the domestic production of beautiful marbles with a reduced carbon footprint and lead-time compared to the international alternatives. The Danby Marble Quarry sits within 500 miles of many US cities such as New York, Boston, Washington, DC and Philadelphia. For those projects located within 500 miles, Vermont Danby Marbles may help contribute toward regional material credit for those projects seeking LEED Certification.
 
The Vermont Danby Marble Collection is also Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified. Vermont Vermont Danby Collections Quarries is the first and only marble quarry to achieve this certification for low chemical emissions.
