Caption: Dolomite from Eriboll, Sutherland.
Description: The dolomite in Eriboll belongs to the Cambro-Ordovician Durness Limestone. It is exposed east of Durness along the eastern shore of Loch Eriboll and on An Corr Eilean in the centre of the loch. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7502. Around Eriboll village it forms a fairly extensive outcrop and includes a considerable thickness of dolomite. The dolomite is similar to that at Durness and includes a large proportion of high-grade dolomites suitable for either refractory purposes or as a source of metallic magnesium.
