Ooh that all sounds interesting.
I've found a few references (off the bibliography for 'Appendix II' of the Stonehenge archaeological research framework) here
though they're probably not what you were thinking of.

Cunnington, B H, 1920, “Blue hard stone, ye same as at Stonehenge”, found in Boles Barrow(Heytesbury I). Wiltshire Archaeological andNatural History Magazine, 41, 172-4

Cunnington, B H, 1924, The Blue Stone from BolesBarrow. Wiltshire Archaeological and NaturalHistory Magazine, 442, 431-47

Thorpe, R S, William-Thorpe, O, Jenkin, D G, and Watson, J S, 1991, The geological sources and transport of the bluestones of Stonehenge, Wiltshire, UK. Proceedings of the Prehistoric Society, 57.2, 103-157

Williams-Thorpe, O, Green, C P and Scource, J D, 1997, The Stonehenge bluestones: discussion. Proceedings of the British Academy, 92, 315-318

there's loads more on that list anyway - might be useful to people generally.
