Durin's Stone was a pillar that stood on the banks of Mirrormere lake near the East-gate of Khazad-dûm.

According to the Dwarves of Durin's Folk, it was built on the site where Durin the Deathless looked down in the lake and saw a crown above his head; its purpose was to mark the event. It was ornamented with runes. By the later Third Age the stone was broken, cracked and heavily weathered.[1]

Balin was slain on that spot in T.A. 2994.
