Caption: Marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland.
Description: A medium-grained marble with grey streaks from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland. Marble, a metamorphosed limestone was formed by the intense heat from the nearby Caledonian intrusion, the Loch Borrallan Complex. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7522. The contact metamorphism causes recrystallization of the original limestone or dolomite. During the Second World War, the Geological Survey of Great Britain carried out extensive research into the dolomites, limestones, marbles and brucite marbles of Scotland. Sutherland was found to contain large reserves though distance to industrial centres meant exploitation was difficult.
