Granite quarry, Aswan

The granite quarry at Aswan was already in use at 3000 BC. to provide material for buildings in the north. The unfinished obelisk for an unknown pharaoh is the greatest attraction. During the cutting of the 42.5 meters long stone it cracked and they stopped cutting it out. Otherwise it would have been the largest obelisk of Egypt.
