Caption: Limestone from Durness, Sutherland.
Description: Limestone from Durness, Sutherland. The specimen comes from the Cambro-Ordovician Durness Group, a sequence of limestones, dolomitic limestones and dolomite. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7444. Huge resources exist though they have been worked only on a small scale due to their remoteness. In this area there are over 1500 feet of bedded dolomites and subordinate limestones and magnesian limestones. The rocks as a rule are comparatively free from impurities and siliceous matter occurs mainly in the form of chert nodules or bands restricted to certain horizons.
