What is a rock? We all know what rocks are right? The are lying on the ground everywhere! They are the mountains, and canyons that you can't help but notice. We have all thrown them, sat on them, and dug them out of our gardens. We have admired them, worn them as adornments, collected and coveted them.
Rocks are the pages in the history book of the earth. They tell stories of times long past. From rocks, we have learned of dinosaurs, trilobites and thousands of other life forms that existed on earth once but are now no more.
We have learned that the earth is constantly moving, shifting, and changing. Rock is continually being created. It is heated, squeezed, and weathered into new rocks. Finally, it is remelted to start the process anew. By studying rocks, we learn to read the pages of earth's history.
Have you ever wondered where that special rock you like came from? Is there a special gemstone that catches your fancy every time you see it? Do you believe rocks and crystals hold special healing powers and properties? Perhaps you just like that rock because it "speaks" to you in a way only you can understand or holds a fond memory of an adventure you had.
