The great quartz vein of Grob Bagh, Gigha.

 A great vein of quartz....

 ...stretches out to sea from Grob Bagh on the SW coast of Giga.

 Seen end on it is like a miniature mountain range covered in snow.

 The quartz crystals are predominantly white but are...

 flecked with brown.

In comparison, the rockpools at the base of the vein are a blaze of colour.
