 Isle of Man plaque

The Manx stone donated by the Isle of Man Government through representative of the Manx community Mr Charles Righyni, a resident of Hobart with relatives on the Isle of Man on 24th of October 1995. The stone is made from black marble and came from the Poyylvaaish quarry near Castletown the former capital of the Isle of Man. The stone is really a compact fossiliferous limestone containing fragments of sea shells, sea lilies and corals. The surface is in a fine grind state and the computer design work engraving and gilding are the work of Mr. Malcolm Smith, of Manx Rockcraft and Celtic Engravings. At the centre of the design is the red and white three-legged Manx emblem with the inscription in Manx Gaelic above and in English below. The text is painted white except for the gilded words "Isle of Man"
