Caption: Dolomite from Durness, Sutherland.
Description: A specimen of dolomite from a point on the coast one mile west of the island in Loch Borralaidh (Loch Borralie). The dolomite is a Group II, Eilean Dubh Group dolomite. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7467. This area, lying to the west of Durness has comparatively large reserves, but lacks any means of access either by road or sea. The specimen of dolomite was collected in August 1914 by Lt. Col. Anderson and Mr. Hanton of Hogo Knoblauch Sons & Co. Ltd., Leith. The dolomites of Durness and Eriboll have been examined at several times with a view to exploitation including during and after World War Two.
