Caption: Brucite marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland.
Description: In Assynt brucite marbles were reported by Teall in the Northwest Highlands Memoir to occur in the Ledbeg River, half a mile east-south-east of Loyne. However investigations in c. 1941 failed to locate this outcrop though brucite marbles were found on the hill-slope roughly three-quarters of a mile to the north-west of Ledbeg. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7518. A fairly fine-grained specimen though typically the marbles are medium-grained, nearly white in colour and consist of calcite and brucite together with a little dolomite. Brucite forms small aggregates from about 0.1 mm. to 1 mm. in diameter. The large grains are mostly rounded in outline but the smaller ones give square, triangular and hexagonal sections.
