Caption: Limestone from Largie, Aberdeenshire.
Description: A sheared blue-grey limestone with flesh-coloured veins from the east side of the pond 200 yards north-east of Largie School, Aberdeenshire. British Geological Survey Petrology Collection sample number MC 7660. A Dalradian Supergroup (Precambrian) limestone occurs in the Coreen Hills at Largie, Old Meldrum, Auchnagatt, Fetterangus, Strichen and Fraserburgh and elsewhere, however they have never been regarded of significant economic importance. Most limestone resources in Aberdeen lay further south in the best known and readily accessible Deeside Limestone. It forms a large outcrop between Ballater and Aboyne. Unfortunately it is poor to moderate in quality with a high calc-silicate mineral residue.
