2 February 2012

Beautiful rust

Rust swirls on shale fragment, new New Route 55, Valley & Ridge province of West Virginia. I’m not sure if I can call this “Liesegang banding,” since it’s just on the joint surface (two-dimensional) rather than permeating the rock in a three-dimensional blob. Anyhow… It’s pretty.
