Monday Geology Picture(s): A Geologist’s Dream Bathroom, Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi

A fancy bathroom in the Emirates Palace Hotel, Abu Dhabi. Just look at those gorgeous deocorative stones!

This week I’m continuing with sharing some pictures from my January 2012 trip to visit my friend Karima in Abu Dhabi. During our fancy lunch at the Emirates Palace Hotel, we went to the women’s bathroom, which I immediately referred to as “a geologist’s dream bathroom” because of all of the beautiful decorative stones.

Geologists, what types of stones would you put in your dream bathroom?
