Rock 365 : Day 10 : Sideritic Conglomerate #365photos

20100110

Day 10 : Again from the back garden collection, today’s rock is a conglomerate. I find conglomerates and breccias the most aesthetically pleasing of rocks. This one is from Monkstone Point, Pembrokeshire, Wales and is a conglomerate containing not only vein quartz, but clasts of siderite nodules (iron carbonate), reworked from the underlying Coal Measures.
