Caption: Marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland.
Description: Marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland. The marble has been formed by the contact metamorphism of the Cambro-Ordovician Durness Limestone by the Loch Borralan Complex a suite of mafic and ultramafic syenites intruded as a sheet-like complex. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7521. The heat from the intrusion has altered the surrounding limestones and dolomites to marble and brucite marbles. The principal outcrops are near Loyne and Ledbeg with a much smaller occurrence at Elphin. The dolomite and brucite marbles were investigated for economic value during the Second World War.
