Detailed Mineral List:

Calcioancylite-(Ce)
Formula: (Ce,Ca,Sr)CO3(OH,H2O)
Habit: pseudotetragonal bipyramids with eight large plane faces. The corners of the crystals are often modified by paired faces which are usually only resolved under a scanning electron microscope (SEM). The underlying orthorhombic symmetry is sometimes betrayed by elongation along one of the perpendicular axes, which alters the apparently bipyramidal crystal shape to a squat prism.
Colour: pink to grey
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
Calcite
Formula: CaCO3
Habit: modified rhombohedra up to several millimetres on edge
Colour: translucent white
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
Edingtonite
Formula: Ba[Al2Si3O10] · 4H2O
Habit: flat bipyramids, equant wedge shaped crystals, drusy aggregates, crystals rarely exceeding 1mm
Colour: colourless to white
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
Harmotome
Formula: (Ba0.5,Ca0.5,K,Na)5[Al5Si11O32] · 12H2O
Habit: squat to prismatic cruciform (Perrier and pseudohexagonal morvenite) twins up to 5mm but usually less than 2mm.
Colour: colourless to white
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
Marcasite
Formula: FeS2
Habit: prismatic to tabular up to 1mm
Colour: tarnished
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
Pyrite
Formula: FeS2
Habit: minute cubes, octahedra, and pentagonal dodecahedra up to 1mm
Colour: tarnished
Reference: Hubbard, N., Green, D.I., and Tindle, A.G. (2008) Barium Zeolites and Calcioancylite-(Ce) From Guisachan Quarry, Tomich, Highland, Scotland. Journal of the Russell Society, vol. 11, 73-79.
