Through hard work & God’s will, we are one of the only independently owned granite quarries left in the USA. All of our granite is produced here, not overseas. Along with the quarrying process all of our fabrication is also done locally here in Colorado. We believe in our product and our people.
Established in 1947, Colorado Rose Red granite quarry has been owned & operated by the Liesveld for 68 years. Having origins in Holland as master stone cutters, the Liesveld family migrated to the United States to continue the three-century tradition.
Situated in the heart of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Rose Red is located just outside of Estes Park, CO. This is where the now 4 generations of Liesvelds have operated from. The current owner Caleb Liesveld works closely with Dan Liesveld, his father and Mike Liesveld, his uncle to carry on the family legacy.
In a time when trades are disappearing rapidly. We work hard to teach our people and ourselves the skills of the stone industry. Quarrying and cutting stone is one of the world’s oldest trades, and we are committed to its knowledge and skill.

The DJL water-jet channeling machine uses extreme high pressure water to cut channels in the quarry to relieve blocks from the mountain. We have been using this type of machine in the quarrying process for 30 years now. It is unique in its ability to cut rooms in the mountain to get to the best stone. All other alternative processes require the operator to quarry from the top of the mountain down removing everything as they quarry the mountain. Dan Liesveld Sr. and Dan Liesveld Jr. invented the process and machine out of necessity when other quarrying methods did not meet their needs.
This is a textured finish used primarily for outdoor applications such as pavers and panels. As an alternative to flaming the water-jet surface provides a safe walking surface, which does not jeopardize any color or structural integrity of the stone. It is offered in coarse, medium and fine.
With an accumulated 90 years of monument cutting experience on site. We have the expertise to hand cut any of your individualized projects.
In some cases it is more cost effective to resurface a particular stone rather than replace it. For these situations we offer the alternative of resurfacing monuments, signs and slabs with a full range of surface options.
