Caption: Specimen of Stanton Moor Gritstone, Stanton Moor Quarry, Matlock, Derbyshire.
Description: Sample of Stanton Moor Gritstone from the building stone collection of the Edinburgh World Heritage Trust. The stone has a cut surface with a pale orange-buff colour. This specimen is of Carboniferous age. Stanton Moor stone has been used as a replacement stone for repair work in many historic buildings in Edinburgh. Edinburgh World Heritage Trust sample no. EWHT 80. New stone introduced in the course of `like for like? repair should be compatible with, and match the original as closely as possible. Where the original stone cannot be obtained for masonry repair, the most similar stone should be used by matching not just colour and appearance, but also physical and chemical characteristics.
