Rock specimen
4/52 for the group 2016 Weekly Alphabet Challenge

This week's theme was: D is for Distorted

The thing about being married to a geologist is that you end up with lots of rock specimens around the place. In this one you can see the tiny fold where the rock has been distorted by heat and pressure.

I'm afraid I don't know what the rock is. If I can catch G in a non-stressed moment, I will try to remember to ask, but for the moment it will just have to be Unidentified Interesting Rock.

Unidentified rock with red inclusion... but yes, pretty. I look forward to the identification.

What an interesting red smear the rock has -- more like someone's finger dipped in catsup than the forces of nature!

That is a very dramatic rock. It reminds me a bit of the David Bowie lightning bolt...
