Hello Everyone, I hope all had a good weekend.

I had a chance this weekend to cut a few of very large rocks I collected at Glover Bluff a couple week ago and found myself scratching my head at what I saw.


Some were red/yellow/white polymict breccias with fragments.of quartzite answer chert, some where what looked like included sandstone melts and some of the combinations were quite breathtaking and complex.

I wondered if anyone may be able to explain or take a stab at describing what I'm seeing and the process it may have took to create it.

I only found a few small shatter cones, nothing like Kentland, but where that lacked the beautiful breccia made up for it.

Any ideas? Has anyone seen this before or have Glover Bluff in their collection? I will have beautiful slices answer endcuts soon. If interested let me know. Trade of sale.
