an interesting rock is all

Recommended Posts

I know there is nothing special about this rock except that it tickles me. I found it on the beach like just about all the stones I find.

It is an awesome rock!

Looks like a quartz vein in some sort of country rock. The quartz was chemically and mechanically more durable and the country rock has mostly been eroded away. 

A rock like that tells a good story. It's not just a dumb rock that does not give you much info. It definitely represents change and movement. The passage of time.

You can plainly see how the harder rock is persisting and the softer stone is weathering away. The quartz was once surrounded by the dark rock but now it holds it together.

When you look at a rock like that you can actually hear the hubs of Hell spinning around and feel the eons passing.

Thanks! You always make me smile.
