Some pretty geology

Rock as hard as a hard thing that has been squeezed and folded like toffee (taffy) :)

Funny. Toffee and Taffy are two different things here.

And they are pretty rocks. :)

What's toffee over there? I think it's the same as here. Basically they behave in the same way when warm and can be moulded or stretched :)

That's a fabulous shot.

I can see a vein running through it so it can't be a coal seam.....a meta-shale perhaps?

It's actually a basalt dyke :)

Wow. It looked dark enough to be basalt but I didn't think it would fold that ductiley.

...which is why you're the structural geologist, and I'm the geophysicist!
