Giza Limestone Quarry (Egypt)

The stones used for Khufu's pyramid is a gray-yellow colored nummulite limestone and belongs to the Mokattam formation. The Giza quarries only lie a couple hundred meters south from the pyramid of Khufu. Then the plateau itself where the pyramid lies was also used for quarrying stones.
