I didnt know that! So there is a good chance that in restoring Newgrange they could have put paving stones up as facing brick!
This is a pic I took of the quartz in Knockroe

Its lying in front of the eastern chamber so perhaps it was a type of paving.


Ah didn't know about the Knockroe ,yet another one .Sometimes it is reffered to as paving but it could just be be ground cover , ther are cases of deposits in the quartz but I can't remember where . There is also the possible use of quartz at some rock art sites where it has been hammered into fissures .
