Stanhope Famp is a limestone that caps outcrops of stone throughout the Weardale Valley, in County Durham. It is a simple black stone that is unlike any other and its simplicity makes it a wonderful foil for more established marbles.
The stone is well suited for sculpting and over time has produced a number of beautiful pieces.
Typical slab sizes are 1.5x 1.2m; however they can vary.
