I love rocks, especially ones as special as this. We found a sand stone filled with clam shells on the beach.
Formation of fossils and sand stone is the method by which nature preserves the dead species are pressed between the rocks and kept for millions of years. The formation may take up to thousands of years minimum. A lot has to do with the pressure exerted by the rocks and the depth in which they fell. The belief had always been that it may take million years for extinguished fossils.
Contrary to this popular belief, it doesn't always take millions or thousands of years for fossils to form. Again depending on the environmental influences and the location, certain subjects can fossilize in as few as five to ten years.
The creation of this rock with the embedded shell-fossils might be one contradiction of the test of time and beauty. Usually beauty deteriorates in time, a taunt young skin becomes wrinkled, and a blooming flower becomes brown and wilted. But in this case, time has created beauty.
I ran into other sandstone admirers who couldn't stop talking about their experience with the Forex training seminars. It all sounded interesting and yet another to be done on my list.
Thursday Two Questions:
1) This is an example of a subject that beautifies over time, what comes to your mind regarding another subject or being that becomes more beautiful over time?
2) Whose fingers are on the rock? For those who are not regular readers, are the fingers from a baby or a woman?
