These Trovants of Romania are an amazing geological phenomena, found in a small village named Costesti. Trovants is a synonym for the German term "Sandsteinkonkretionen", which means Cemented Sand. They were believed to be a type of sandstone concretion that secrete cement and can appear to grow at times, as if they are alive. These fascinating 'living stones' were thought to consist of a stone core with an outer shell of sand, and after a heavy rain small stone forms are said to appear on the rocks leading them to be dubbed as the "growing stones”. What's more interesting is the fact that these Trovants when cut had spherical and ellipsoidal rings similar to the ones of a tree trunk. These growing rocks were thought to look identical and even move like the sliding rocks of death valley.
Or align them in a fashion to grow a home?
Wow imagine if you could grow rocks. Build a loose wall and let the rocks grow into each other. The wall would get stronger and bigger over time.
