Sabino Rocks, 2

Photo by Nancy Carey 10/18/2013

Nancy submitted this beautiful example of Augen (German, noun: eyes). Augen are large, eye-shaped mineral grains visible in metamorphic rocks. This example is in the creek bed off tram road. She thinks (and I agree) that it looks like Vincent van Gogh's The Starry Night.

The location of the formation in yesterday's post? The Two-faced Rock of Bridge Two.
