I have no idea what they are, not sure where to begin. I know they are run of the mill Wyoming rocks, I guess that is why I like em so much, every time I look at them I will think of beautiful Wyoming.
This guy just fascinates me, what caused the marks, fossils? Crystals? I found this one in Torrey creek up in the Wind River basin.
Below is NOT stuff I found but was given to Brian and I by an amateur geologist and fellow RVer.
Above desert Roses, these are crystals that grow on the desert floor...very cool
Above, in the box at 9 o'clock Apache tears ( volcanic glass), the pink necklace is a pink sapphire, at the bottom the clear glass looking rock is called a moon rock. Then, drum roll!! my absolute favorite, the long rock is actually 1.7 billion year old algae! I'll probably take it to a professional and see if a slice can be taken from it to make into a necklace. I am Ocean Girl after all :-) I practically slept with my algae rock the first few nights I had it, I couldn't tear my eyes off if it, it is just too cool!! now it sits in a place of honor under our big rear window of the RV.
We are heading to Wind River Gorge to truck camp so hopefully more rocks to come :-)
