Time for a couple of clues: The pitch is very dark. Well known geological feature.

I'm bad enough about getting letter counts wrong - but are you sure this shouldn't be 13, 4 ?  :)

 How interesting...never noticed that before
yes 13....
The word in the answer should have two 'ls'... the two seem to be synonyms, but the geological feature uses the longer spelling.

Mr Google seems to give geological results for either spelling. Go for it Andys.

My planned answer was Porcelaneous Band, but although Porcel(l)aneous has two acceptable spellings, most of the Dales geological references seem to have the one with two 'ls' , hence the letter count inflation.
