Caption: Brucite marble from Kilchrist, Locality 3, Skye, Invernessshire.
Description: This brucite marble is from a well-known locality, Kilchrist (Loch Cill Chriosd) on Skye. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7524. The marble outcrops at various localities along the hillside to the south of Loch Kilchrist, where it forms massive workable bands associated with other varieties of marble. In the early 1940s it was recognized that brucite marble had been used as a substitute for magnestite in the manufacture of basic refractory linings. Linings were reputedly equal in every way to magnestite and superior to burnt dolomite refractories.
