My Rock Collection.
I've always collected rocks. We would go to the beach,national park and as always we would go for walks and explore and I would collect rocks. I remember Mummy and Daddy complaining about how many rocks I brought home,to them they were worthless mere pebbles.but to me they were like jewels .
Over the years my collection has grown to an enormous hoard of rocks of all sizes. I have pebbles, river-rocks,granite, basalt,beach-stones,sharpel,but, my absolute favorite kind of rock has always been Quartz. When I was little I thought it looked like diamonds and all other sorts of jewels . I have pieces of different colours pink, white, clear, and grey.
I also have a rock that my family and I have been unable to identify it is known as "The Diamond".
For years we have had no idea what it is ,we still dont but, now that I'm older I'm wondering whether it is a piece of Tiger- Quartz.
So even though I'm 16 years old I still collect rocks. And unless I suddenly go mad, or lose the taste for it, I reckon I'll probably collect rocks even when I'm an old.
These are some pictures of my collection. I hope you enjoy looking.
