For this week’s “Monday Geology Picture” I thought that I would share another picture that I took during my recent visit to The British Museum. This week’s picture shows¬†two beautiful ancient Egyptian stone jars. The jar on the left is made out of limestone breccia while the jar on the right is made out of andesite porphyry.

Here’s the museum sign about the two jars:
