That's an unusual looking stone with the hole in it :-)
Yes, it is! And to date it's the largest stone brought back by son from one of his 'expeditions'! He carried this in his backpack all over the Wicklow mountains to get it home. Convinced, I think, that Vikings or cave men put that hole in the stone!Thanks for visiting and for your comment :-)xx Jazzy
Oh bless him!
Now that's a treasure find better than any toy. My son is constantly bringing stones home to
Trying to think if it looks like something where the hole is the eye but think I'm looking too much into it ;o) Great stone, well done your boy
Ahhh, my daughter's a stone collector too - it's such a heavy hobby!!
@Nikki: He's always had a great interest in rocks and minerals ;-)@Kriss MacDonald. Yes, it is..... doesn't beat Xbox though! Pity.@Debbie Jones: Hehehe! I think the top looks a bit like a helmet? A side-on view would make the hole look like an eyelet for a strap? Or maybe it's just a rock with a hole in it!@rach2001: It sure is! My boy is at this a very long time. He's now 13 and still collecting unusual stones, none of which I'm allowed throw out!@Coombe Mill: Sadly, Blogger seems to have chewed up your comment :-( Thanks, it IS a very large keepsake!This particular stone was taken from the woods right above the Powerscourt Waterfall, Enniskerry, Co Wicklow where my son was on a scout hike. It is an interesting area of great beauty. We were always fascinated by the colour of the water down at the bottom and now he's seen how it occurs from the top. This was also covered in his geography class too so it really was very interesting for him.Maybe he'll be a geologist?!!Thanks for visiting and for your comments :-)xx Jazzy
There's something very pleasing about that rock. I like it.
I get the feeling this is not just a usual stone? :)
@Midlife Singlemum: My boy would agree with you there!@Bavarian Sojourn: Not according to my son ;-)Thanks for your comments :-) xx Jazzy
Oooh, that is an interesting stone. I wonder what stories it could tell. :)
Hehe, I used to collect stones too. That looks like a very heavy one!! I think I've still got a little black pebble with a red line across it that I found in Northumberland on a junior school trip somewhere :) Beadzoidxx
@Bright Side of Life: It is interesting, when you think about it, isn't it? And I'm eternally grateful that non-xbox things continue to have the power to cause wonder :-)@Beadzoid: Wow, that's a long time to keep a stone!! I think we will have quite a collection by the time our boy is finished ;-) Thanks for your comments :-)xx Jazzy
