Rose de la Clarté

The Rose de la Clarté quarry
Since 1976, the quarry has been extracting Rose de la Clarté natural stone from the Ploumanac’h granite basin. Although this basin has had a rich history of extraction for centuries, there are only two companies still active there today, including SAG, which is owned by Brachot. Its annual sales market is estimated in the region of 3.000 m³, with the Brachot quarries accounting for a good 2.300 m³.
