Caption: Limestone from Dalnatrat, Argyllshire.
Description: A white crystalline banded limestone/dolomite from Dalnatrat in Argyllshire. The rock belongs to the Appin Limestone or more correctly known today as the Appin Phyllite and Limestone Formation. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7548. The rock is Dalradian Supergroup (Precambrian) in age and consists of an alternating sequence of carbonate rocks and phyllites with flaggy psammites and thin quartzites. Carbonates include the pure white Onich Limestone. The Appin Limestone has been viewed as a possible source of dolomite, although it has been quarried in the past for agricultural purposes. The best quality is known to outcrop at Dalnatrat.
