The Little Minch Sill Complex became emplaced into Middle Jurassic sediments underlying the Skye Main Lava Series, although intrusive relationships suggest that it is marginally younger than the lavas (Gibson, 1990) Gibson and Jones (1991) have stated that is composed of both single and multiple sills, represented by three main, genetically related units: picrite, picrodolerite and crinanite (analcime-rich dolerite); these are the result of the differentiation of an alkali-olivine basalt magma in an upper-crustal magma chamber.

Tournon (1984) reported for the same area an isolated block of picrite instead, and Calero (1987) reported in the Tortugal area a similar ultramafic rock but classified it as lamprophyre (monchiquite).

Version 1 .1B of the PicRite pick-to-light system for picking from flow rack, shelving and pallet locations includes enhanced productivity tracking and reporting features.
The retained heat also allowed very slow cooling, during which differentiation of the basaltic magma occurred, producing a layered intrusion composed of at least seven distinct rock types, with analcime dolerite (teschenite) and picrite forming the bulk of the intrusion.
