I should have thought that as a proper name for a material worked from a well-defined geological unit, the term should be 'Portland Stone' rather than 'Portland stone'. Trawling the web, both approaches are seen to be used, often mixed in a single article. The British Geological Survey refers to it as the 'Portland Freestone'. Any comment?

I guess this is a result of the Wikipedia policy on capitalisation of article titles etc; generally sentence case is preferred, except of course for the initial letter and then for proper nouns etc. (though there are exceptions, such as names of birds, which have resulted in furious debate at the Manual of Style page).
