 Dakota Mahogany® Brown Velvet Blocks

The smallest of our three Dakota Mahogany® quarries, Brown Velvet has long been a favorite among block buyers because of its finer grain compared with the other two. Since the mid 70’s Japan and Taiwan have used 100% of this quarry’s production, and only in recent years has it been made available to the rest of the world.

With a maximum annual production of 1000 cubic meters, Brown Velvet is perfect for small to medium size building projects. Lincoln Plaza in Dallas Texas was built using many different Dakota Mahogany granite colors. Utilizing each variation of color for both exterior and interior applications.
