Ba Ria Granite Quarry is one of the several quarries around Dinh Mountain (Nui Dinh in Vietnamese) which is a granite/granodiorite batholith of the Cretaceous Deo Ca Complex that intruded the rhyolite/trachyrhyolite Nha Trang Complex.

This batholith is NW-SE oriented and is about 85 square km in size. Several faults NE-SW oriented are dissecting this massif which is resulting in two main culminations:
- Nui Dinh to the south close to Ba Ria with a maximum elevation of 504m, and
- Nui Thi Vai to the NW close to Phu My with a maximum elevation of 467m.

The quarry is active and the granite, a pink porphyritic granite with K-feldspar, quartz, plagioclase and minor biotite, is quarried for building and lapidary purposes. It seems that the best quality material is even exported abroad, to Singapore.

Miarolitic cavities and vugs with quartz, epidote, calcite, and K-feldspar are very common and with size varying from a few centimetres up to one meter.
