Description: A specimen of blackband ironstone from the Lumbo - Denhead field three miles south-west of St. Andrews. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7371. The ironstone occurs within the Carboniferous Lower Limestone Group and is only of economic importance in this area. The deposit occurs in a syncline stretching from Denhead across Mount Melville to Lumbo. The strata is very steep generally dipping 20-25 degrees but up to 40 degrees in places. The ironstone was worked as far back as the first half of the 1800s in the area to the south-west of Denhead. It was also mined south and west of Lumbo.
