National Stone Centre Professional Stone Matching Service

Whether you are restoring a scheduled ancient monument, planning an extension in a conservation area or simply looking to be technically correct in your project we at the NSC are able to identify and match the most appropriate stone.

Free from commercial bias, drawing on the skills from a pool of professional geologists and the National Stone Collection, we can offer a remote matching service requiring only photographic and geographic records for £250. If we are unable to provide an identity with certainty, it may require a site visit and further analysis, a price for which will be discussed on a case-by-case basis.

Any surplus generated from our commercial activities contribute to the running of the NSC, which is a registered Charity.

Please email nationalstonecentre@quarrying.org and we’ll get back to you with our information needs and payment details.
