Where we can find zeolites on Isle of Skye?

Last Updated: 3rd Aug 2008

Isle of Skye is one of most popular places in Scotland. It's not only great views but also very interesting place coz of mineralogy. Of course the reason why I am writing about Isle of Skye is zeolites. There is plenty of them! Here I am publishing map and list with all localization that I have found on internet (most on mindat of course). I am publishing some pictures of samples - for now other collectors.
