Abstract

Based on the results of many years of monitoring, the unique stone material of tombstones in the historical Necropoleis of the Museum of City Sculpture is described, represented by marbles, limestones, granites and other rocks. The most probable locations of deposits of the used decorative facing stone were in most cases identified with the help of archival data and other literature. It is shown that the diversity of stone in the Necropoleis is as great as in downtown St. Petersburg. There are also unique monuments (to N.A. Rimsky Korsakov, I.R. Tarkhanov, etc.), whose stone material has not yet been found elsewhere. The stone was delivered mainly from Italy and the vicinity of St. Petersburg (from the territories of the present Leningrad region, Karelia and Finland).
