Set In Stone

Literally… πŸ˜„ I used to collect rocks and stones as a kid, and when it comes to fossils and unusual rocks and stones today, well… I still like them. These are photos of the rocks and stones in my collection. This is my response to Dutch Goes The Photo’s Photo Challenge, Stones. πŸ™‚

Lots of colors!

This one my aunt found; doesn’t the one in the center look like a tornado?!

Lots of shell and possibly bryozoan impressions from creatures of long ago…

I like the odd pattern in this one.

The blue crystal is one I bought on vacation, but I can’t remember where. I could have been from a vacation to Mena Mountain, but I can’t say for sure, it’s been too long. The rock near the center fascinates me because it changes color halfway through. What kind of rock does that? πŸ˜„ And several rocks in this one have fossils in them. I don’t know what kind they are though.

It looks like water shaped this rock oddly; I like the layers in it.

More shells and a burst of red.

Even more shells and what I think are crinoid fossils. (The little circles.)

And more of those… XD

The whole basket!

This one came with a card that tells about it.

And so did this one. πŸ™‚ My aunt gave me these years ago.

  2. Beautiful! ❀ I love all of these pictures so much!! Especially the ones with the fossils. Fossils are a rare find and my collection is very small, haha XD

    The blue one is what fascinates me the most! Those colours are so pretty!! It's like an ombre fade. I also like the red one because of the colours.

    Haha, you're right about the one that changes colour – it's really weird but awesome! I've never seen anything like it.

    Great post, great response to the challenge! πŸ™‚
