A specimen of large-grained, pink, white and black, the pink phase of the Kershaw (Liberty Hill) granite collected from the Flat Rock quarry, 6 miles southwest of Kershaw, c. 1972. This granite, which has a more extensive white phase, is used for building stone throughout the Carolinas. It is one of the more attractive building stones available anywhere in eastern North America.
