Depositional contacts, where a sediment layer is deposited over preexisting rock.
Fault contacts, where two units are juxtaposed by a fracture on which sliding has occurred.
Intrusive contacts, where one rock body cuts across another rock body.
Just got this OXO POP top container to store my rice that was just sitting around in clipped bags. I decided to mix all the dregs up. It reminds me of pouring bath salts! Also, I swear rice mixing is some kinda ASMR viral sensation waiting to happen. #rice#sedimentary#grains#cool#oxo#foodstorage
کوه های #مریخی#چابهار که با نام کوههای #مینیاتوری نیز شناخته میشود، بخشی از #طبیعت زیبای شهر همیشه بهاری چابهار بهشمار میرود که متاسفانه چندان مورد توجه قرار نگرفته است. این کوهها به سبب وضعیتی که دارند در دستهی مناطق بدبوم یا بدلند قرار میگیرند. ویژگی مشترک این مناطق عدم وجود پوشش گیاهی و نداشتن ارزش چراگاهی است. کوههای مینیاتوری از نوع رسوبی هستند و طبق نظر کارشناسان در گذشتههای دور زیر تلی از خاک مدفون بودهاند که بر اثر گذشت زمان و بارش بارانهای موسمی از زیر خاک سر برآوردهاند. فرآیندهای تکتونیکی به دلیل فرورانش پوسته عمان به زیر #مکران و فرسایش آبی و بادی از جمله مهمترین دلایل شکلگیری این کوهها بودهاند. شیارهای ریز و یکدستی که روی این کوهها وجود دارند، سبب شده است تا نام مینیاتوری به خود بگیرند و جلوهای #فرازمینی داشته باشند.
The #Chabahar#martian#Mountains , also known as the Miniature Mountains, are part of Chabahar's always evergreen city, which unfortunately has not received much attention. Because of their status, these mountains fall into the category of #Badminton or #Badland . The common feature of these areas is the lack of #vegetation and no pastoral value. The miniature mountains are #sedimentary and, according to experts, have been buried beneath the soil in the distant past, which has been buried beneath the soil due to time and monsoon rains. #Tectonic processes have been among the most important reasons for the formation of these mountains due to the subduction of the Oman Cretaceous to submarine and water and wind #erosion . The fine #grooves on these mountains have made them a #miniature name and have an extraterrestrial effect.
Detrital gemstones from the Mogok district of Myanmar. Shown are zircons, sapphires, spinels, and others. The plate is 5cm across, so some of these beauties are monsters. Many are also sourced in marble, and so have unusually high oxygen isotope ratios.
(La Gomera, Canary Islands) Basalt columns (phonolite ) up a steep wall reaching eighty meters. Carved by erosion, the rocks seem pipes of a cathedral organ. Only you can see from the sea

#Gypsum is a soft sulfate #mineral composed of calcium sulfate dihydrate, with the chemical formula #CaSO4 ·2H2O It is widely mined and is used as a fertilizer and as the main constituent in many forms of plaster, blackboard/sidewalk chalk, and drywall. A massive fine-grained white or lightly tinted variety of gypsum, called #alabaster has been used for sculpture by many cultures including #Ancient#Egypt Mesopotamia, Ancient #Rome the #Byzantine#Empire and the #Nottingham alabasters of Medieval #England Gypsum also crystallizes as translucent crystals of selenite. It also forms as an #evaporite mineral and as a hydration product of #anhydrite . Gypsum is a common mineral, with thick and extensive evaporite beds in association with #sedimentary#rocks . Deposits are known to occur in strata from as far back as the #Archaean eon. Gypsum is deposited from #lake and #sea water, as well as in hot springs, from #volcanic vapors, and sulfate solutions in veins. Hydrothermal anhydrite in veins is commonly hydrated to gypsum by groundwater in near-surface exposures. It is often associated with the minerals halite and sulfur. Gypsum is the most common sulfate mineral. Pure gypsum is white, but other substances found as impurities may give a wide range of colors to local deposits. #geology#geologist#Iran#USA#Australia#China#Canada#Mexico#UK#Texas#Africa
Navajo #Mountain ( #Navajo : Naatsisʼáán) is a peak in San Juan County, #Utah , with its southern flank extending into Coconino County, #Arizona . It holds an important place in the traditions of three local #NativeAmerican tribes. The #summit is the highest area on the #NavajoNation .
Navajo Mountain is a prominent free-standing laccolith, a dome-shaped body of #igneous#rock that intruded into #sedimentary layers and lifted up the overlying layer. The igneous rock at the core of the mountain is wrapped in sedimentary layers.
