  • Centerville (east of), Gwinnett County, Georgia – the Campbell Property Granite Ledge (Granite)  (Excerpt from Geology of The Stone Mountain-Lithonia District, Georgia, by Leo Anthony Herrmann, Georgia State Division of Conservation, Department of Mines, Mining and Geology, Atlanta: 1954, pp. 96.  Used with permission.  You can read the entire entry for this quarry in the PDF document/chapter on “The Stone Industry (of Georgia).)” (PDF)

    Campbell Property – A ledge has been raised but no quarrying has been done on a several acre pavement of Stone Mountain granite located approximately three quarters of a mile east of Centerville.  The property is owned by Mr. C. M. Campbell.

  • “The rock is good quality biotite-bearing muscovite granite similar to that at Stone Mountain except that it contains a slightly greater proportion of microcline than oligoclase…In spite of its good quality the prospects for successful quarrying are unfavorable because of its distance from paved highways and its small areal extent.”
