When we’re out in nature, we look at flowers, trees, wildlife, etc. but most of us never look for or at rocks. Maybe we should, since rocks tell the story of the formation of our planet.
Here is one story of rocks forming in water as provided by Dr. Ross A. Maxwell, a geologist. ” The muds and sands that lie on the bottom of the ocean are saturated with water containing these invisible minerals. When certain conditions are brought about, the water gives up the minerals as a mineral cement or glue that binds the sand and mud particles together to form solid rock. In this manner the coarser materials are bound into a rock that in general appearance is much like slabs of concrete. This type of rock is called conglomerate, and rightly so, for it consists of a conglomeration of all kinds of rock fragments.”
The earth is made from rocks, from the tallest mountain to the floor of the ocean, you will find rocks everywhere.
I love the combination of rocks, plants and water, it’s beautiful to the eye and a tranquil setting. Rocks contain many stories in their composition, can you imagine if rocks could talk, what we’d all learn about the creation of earth.
