Friday fold: Siim Sepp’s SS

Posted by Callan Bentley

Geoblogger Siim Sepp contributed this lovely fold. He says:

I saw a nice fold in Ireland. I like it because it looks like SS to me which are my initials. If you want, you can post it as your friday fold. I haven’t used it yet in my blog.
This small outcrop is in Donegal, NW part of Ireland. I accidentally stumbled upon it. The fold formed most likely during the Grenville Orogeny but rocks themselves are probably much older. The rock seems to be schist and S-letters are made of quartz.

Super Sweet. Happy Friday, all!
