The rock tabernacle...

Here we see the international mark of the dwelling place of God with stone from all across the globe: emerald Siberian malachite, aquatic Persian lapis lazuli, royal stairs of Egyptian porphery, Sicilian jasper, etc.
Meanwhile we see depictions of the Holy Trinity as well as the Last Supper. This tabernacle is located on a side altar at Santa Maria alle Fornaci in Rome.
