Mandale Fossil Limestone 

From Our Quarry To Polished Product

Welcome to Derbyshire Fossil Limestone. This beautiful stone is from the Once-a-week Quarry situated between the villages of Monyash and Sheldon, within the Peak District National Park. The Quarry got it’s name in the early part of the last century, as it was the only quarry that paid it’s workers weekly, when others paid staff fortnightly.

To protect the environment  minimising damage to the stone it is won by hand using traditional ‘plugs’ and ‘feathers’.

A polished section of Derbyshire Limestone represents a portrait of ancient geological history, the fossils being amongst the earliest life forms on our wonderful planet. Your friends and family will be truly fascinated as they admire the beautiful fossils and imagine life on earth during the carboniferous period some 355 million years ago. To Receive A FREE SAMPLE  Please Enter You Details In The Boxes  Below
