Caption: Detail of entrance to St. Mary's Cathedral, Palmerston Place, Edinburgh, Lothian Region.
Description: The image shows a detail of part of the main entrance showing the contact between a column of polished granite and moulded sandstone masonry. Shap Granite is distinguished by its coarse-grained nature and distinctive red-brown colour. It contains large orange-pink crystals of alkali feldspar. The black mineral in the granite, giving it a speckled appearance, is biotite mica. Both black mica (biotite) and white mica (muscovite) are very common minerals in granite.
