Caption: Marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland.
Description: A banded marble from Ledbeg, Assynt, Sutherland. The Cambro-Ordovician Durness Limestone in the vicinity of Ledbeg is all contact metamorphosed due to the heat of the intrusion of the Loch Borrallan Complex during the Caledonian Orogeny. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7523. A number of notable localities exist for marble in the Ledbeg area. There was a small disused quarry 1,000 yards north-west of Ledbeg containing bluish-grey coarsely crystalline marble. Three-quarters of a mile north-west of Ledbeg on the hillside there is a large area of white marbles containing a high percentage of the mineral brucite. Four hundred and thirty yards east-north-east of Ledbeg there is a small quarry with a pale, greenish-white compact marble.
