I believe the white stone of the Matternorn are limestone and marble not granite.

I could be wrong, I know there is limestone and marble but the Wallowa batholith was granodiorite which is between granite and diorite and this stuff was really rough and grainy, not like limestone and marble I am used to. More like granite which is why I labeled it as such. Could be wrong though.
