We have recently produced this stunning Fire Surround in Mandale Derbyshire Fossil Limestone for stock. This photo does not do it any justice and it should be viewed to see the stunning Derbyshire Fossil Content.
The medium grey coloured limestone takes a high polish and was known locally as Sheldon marble. The fossils are mainly crinoids, including Brachiopods , corals and even occasionally sharks teeth.
The fossil beds can vary considerably in shade, base colour, fossil type and fossil distribution. This combined with the quality craftsmanship makes every fire surround truly unique and special. We occasionally inlay Derbyshire Blue John, a beautiful gem stone into some of the fire surrounds.
