Rock 365 : Day 29 : Rough Rock #365photos
Day 29 : This is the wonderfully named Rough Rock otherwise known as the First Grit. This beautifully dark red, coarse-grained feldspathic gritstone doesn't make a particularly good building stone as it is often poorly cemented. Its main use in Staffordshire is actually for glass sand and it is extensively quarried near Moneystone. This sample is from Wetley Rocks.
