The cobbles and pebbles harvested at Caysbriggs have a complex origin.
The majority started out as deposits of quartz-sandstones laid down approximately 800 million years ago and later 500 million years ago. These were altered by heat and pressure into a stronger rock called psammite. Broken up by weather and episodes of glacial action during the last ice age, the rock was then rounded into cobbles and pebbles by glacial movement, rivers and streams. Thousands of years ago they finally arrived at the Moray coast where the deposits were then shifted, rounded and polished again by sea action which sorted the cobbles and pebbles into long strands parallel to the coast. While Psammites or quartz sandstones form the majority of cobbles and pebbles just under a third are made from younger grey and pink granites. These are thought to have travelled further, before being mixed and sorted with the others and surrounded by fine round sand.
