Nature Made Rocks

Rock Collecting Photo Gallery

Welcome to my online rock collecting photo gallery. These are pictures of the rocks that I've collected over the years that have interesting images in the patterns of the grain of the rocks. Or at least, that's what I see when I look at them. Please browse through the categories presented here. We are happy to see you here and hope that you'll come back often.

Just click on the category title or image to see the rocks in that category.

Objects in Nature

This collection of rocks conjure up images of objects we see all around us. I think it's fun to find rocks with images in them provided by Mother Nature.

I find the images of words or individual letters in these rocks to be intriguing. Maybe God, Nature, the Universe is trying to tell us something! Or maybe not. In any case, these are fun rocks to look at.
