Those who know me well also know what a rock hound I am. Instead of postcards I collect rocks and know where each one was gathered.
Fossils in limestone too large to carry
Quarried limestone along the boat ramp full of quartz
Limestone ledges shelters fish under water
and whatever needs shelter above it.
Most of our rocks are different forms of sedimentary.
Note the snail fossil here.
I could not catch the sparkle with the camera
but sunshine and the eyes can find the quartz.
I love rocks where the hole goes completely through it.
We call them fairy rocks as in door ways for the little folks.
Others call them Crone Stones
and believe that the wearer can see the future.
All are sedimentary rocks of varying types.
Double prize here with a hole that is also a fossil.
I found some thin flat rocks to paint and others I will incorporate around my water gardens.
We've found metamorphic rocks and some volcanic rocks along with lots of sedimentary rocks At The Farm. I enjoy reading the history in each stone. Millions of years can be seen in a rock cliff and I get lost in time.
And that is Geology One for preschool...I try to learn more with every rock I touch but I have a long way to go.
