THE GEOLOGY OF JURA
 
By David J. Horne
 

Booklet (second hand copy in very good condition)

 

Jura is an island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, adjacent to and northeast of Islay.​​​​​​​ 

  

The island is composed largely of Dalradian quartzite, a hard metamorphic rock, in places penetrated by basalt dykes that were formed during a period of intense volcanic activity in the early Palaeogene period, 56 million years ago. The west coast has a number of raised beaches, which are regarded as a geological feature of international importance.


This little booklet tells the story of the geology of the island. It is illustrated by the author's own black and white sketches. 


Soft cover. Published by D.G.B. Wright. 20 pages. Undated (looks 1990s?)
