The exterior stone is a flamed face Bluestone that was quarried out of Vermont specifically for this house.

I hope you found the chimney cap you were looking for. This detail was specified by the architect and we did the interior design so I don't have the source.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

John Hill added this to Unique Chimneys, Outside and Inside
This "suburban modern" house has — count 'em — four chimneys, two at either end of rectangular gable volumes. Each chimney bookends and stands out through their exaggerated height. Nevertheless they are wrapped in the same stone as the rest of the house; perhaps this gesture helps make the project modern.
Appearing chiseled from stone monoliths, these simple sculptural forms are elegantly tied to local materials: stone walls cut into the landscape, recalling an agricultural past. The vertical reaches of the stone chimneys mark important gathering places in the home, visible from all points on the site. Contrasting areas of airy, open windows and heavy stone speak to notions of shelter and thoughtfully control light and views.
