Abstract

The Igneous rock containing this Garnet as a constant
accessory constituent, occurs as an outcrop about 6 feet
wide on the beach between Port Cygnet and Lymington.
It is intruded between other volcanic rocks, and, as far
as could be ascertained from a hasty examination, seems
to be the only exposure in this locality. From fossils
found it is probably contemporaneous with the Permo-
Carboniferous sediments.
