liath, dearg, dubh.

Pieces of grey, red and black granite found very close to each other by a stream that flows into Loch Ossian, from the slopes of Carn Dearg, whilst making an anti-clockwise walk of the loch in bad weather, March 2015


A rock found in the abandoned lead mines at Strontian, containing intrusions of galena, July 2014. Strontiante was first discovered here in 1790 and it's from this mineral that the element Strontium was first isolated. Galena is sometimes known as "lead glance", and is an important source of silver.


Quartz interspersed with sheets of flaking mica, found amongst the rubble of a dis-used steading in the Cairngorms,  Sept. 2014


Quartzite banded rock found beside the coral beach, at Coillegillie, Applecross, close to a plaque with the inscription "Greig Lerner loved this place",  April 2015
