Georgia Granite

The Piedmont region of the state of Georgia contains vast deposits of granite in many forms as well as other igneous and metamorphic rocks.

Igneous intrusions known as Monadnocks include Stone Mountain, Panola Mountain, Arabia Mountain, Davidson Mountain, Alcovy Mountain, Sweat Mountain, and Blackjack Mountain.

In addition to small mountains, granite flatrock outcrops abound in Georgia. Heggies Rock in Appling (near Augusta) is one of the largest and most interesting. It is a private and protected nature preserve only seen by appointment.

Many Georgia granite locations have become quarries. Elberton, Georgia, is known as the granite capital of the world.
