Bohus Grey Iddefjord
A Bohus granite type from Norway just north of the Swedish border with glittering shades of light grey.
The quarry is located on the Iddefjorden fjord outside of Halden in Norway, close to the Swedish border. At our Skriverøya quarry, which started as long ago as 1840, we quarry the grey Bohus granite. A lot of the stone was supplied for the reconstruction of Hamburg in Germany, which suffered a large fire in 1842.
We have run the quarry since 1988, and the products we supply are block stone for headstone and construction stone products, walls and artworks. Bohus Grey Iddefjord has been exported to India, Argentina, Cuba, South Africa, Great Britain, Germany and many other parts of Europe.
Projects include the Ritz Hotel in London, a 14-metre-high wall made from a single block for the pan-Nordic Embassies in Berlin, and the sculptures in Vigelandsparken park in Oslo.
