Vatican stone, or Frosterley Marble, as it is also called, is a black limestone (rather than a marble as was once thought) with the fossilised remains of Stags Horn Coral clearly and attractively visible. This stone is 325 million years old and is only to be found in County Durham in the village of Frosterley.

In the middle ages it was a popular building stone for high status buildings, e.g. Bishop Auckland Castle, and perhaps most famously has been used in the slender supporting colums of The Chapel of Nine Altars in Durham Cathedral, as well as in buildings in Mumbai and The Vatican - inspiring the name.
