One looks like a miniature corn cobb, and another like a honeycomb. Very interesting indeed!
I noticed those similarities, too!
A few weeks ago my husband and I went to an estate sale nearby, and the garden was full of rocks. Dozens of rocks, each different. The guy said his
mother collected them all on trips with the family....his dad driving, she'd be looking out the window and then cry "Rooooock!". His dad would pull
over, back up, and she'd retrieve whatever had caught her eye.
There were several very nice corals, a geode (topaz quartz) the size of a volleyball (half of it, anyway), several chunks of petrified wood, some
agate, granite lumps, and things I have not yet identified. I wanted them. We waited until the very end of the day and then went back. Asked what
he'd accept for them....
he said $40. I said, "done."
So we brought them home. The next week, my daughter and I were looking at them together and she suddenly looked up and said, "dibs!" (which in our
family means "bequeath this to me" - like a claim).....
I need to catalog and identify them all. Would love it if a fossil/geologist could help me do that.
Anyway, yes, even rocks we CAN see are beautiful in their way. Lots of fossils in this collection, too.
