The granite for our Written on Stone Granite Blocks was headed for the landfill as leftovers from countertop installations. Our friend Carol intercepted it, warehoused it and cut it into blocks for us. It's a fabulous cooperation between two women-owned businesses in Kingsport, TN. These blocks are 3 inches square, weigh nearly a pound, a come in a gift box. The granite colors are mostly black, but we also see some greens, russetts and even blue.
