Leadville Limestone and Yule Marble
Ordinary limestone turns into Colorado's State Rock
|Colorado’s Official State Rock, Yule Marble was created by heat from the Treasure Mountain laccolith. The white area in the image to the right is the dump for non-commercial fragments of the quarry operation.
This pure, white stone was used in the Tomb of the Unknowns and the Lincoln Memorial.
