    Thanks. I wasn't aware the bluestone formation's reached that far south. I thought it was just in NY and PA. That's where I'll be going.

    They ship a lot of it up your ways and then bring penn flag on the return trip. supposedly the NorCarla blue stone is harder but I have not idea.

    I know blue blue is harder than full color range product but i like the look of the full color. Going to a quarry is an absolute must rather than a wholesale yard. They are ALL trying to get at least 100% markup... I'm in the wrong business.

    Have you tried Johnstone & Rhodes? They are in NY and seem to do very good.
