Geology to touch and climb - a geological nature trail

The garden of stones

Gommern, a city with a long tradition in the fields of mining and geology, opened in 1995, the garden of stones.  Meanwhile, he should show the largest and most comprehensive collection of natural stones from Germany and Europe and this is a certain uniqueness. Overlooking the See "Kulk" and the shifting sand dune "Fuchsberg" you can explore the stones. Information boards informed about the formation, structure, classification and origin of the stones. The garden is always freely available. Free guided tours are offered on request by telephone.

The origin of the rocks

Currently, the collection includes 237 stone blocks and varieties of more than 213 localities. Nearly all the bedrock from Germany to be taken as close to the surface and are still produced in quarries, are represented. Other exhibits come from Hungary, Austria, France, Spain, Bulgaria, Poland and Slovakia. The oldest rocks in Europe from Scandinavia and the Baltic region, are found in the glacial boulders in the overburden of the lignite. "Exotics” are a Fuchsitquarzit from northern Norway, samples of lava from Iceland and a serpentinite from Cuba.

The rock types

The rocks vary in colour, shape and structure, which are above all determined by their origin and composition. Here in the rock garden, almost all types of geological formation are represented. If you look at the stones, one can clearly see the differences.

Are significantly different within the earth from the magma crystallized plutonic rocks (eg granite) and the rocks of the volcanoes, which solidifies on the surface of lava and ash: the red porphyry, black basalt and porous tufa. Sediment or sedimentary rocks are deposited by water, wind or ice (eg the different claystones, sandstones and conglomerates). Even organisms such as algae, sponges, corals, clams and snails can build entire rock massif as some limestone. Other deposits are purely vegetable origin, eg lignite, may still occur in the whole tree trunks.

Finally, the geological processes in the formation of the large folds of the mountains under high pressures and temperatures, older rocks have changed beyond recognition, eg rolled out to plattig schists and gneisses or recrystallized to marble and serpentinite.

The skilled person can read in the rocks like a book. Based on their composition and their inclusions, such as fossils, trace fossils, minerals and crystal geodes he can reconstruct their history as a criminologist.

Log terms

  1. Photo:
    Addiction to you in the rock garden of a stone that you like it. Make a photo of you with GPS in front of the stone and note the name of the stone. Upload the photo and rename it after the stone. Perhaps it's a way to get a nice collection of photos of the stones.
  2. What is the name of the stone to the east next to the bog?
  3. How hard is the largest boulder here?

Have fun exploring!

[:P][:P][:P] Hab dich [:P][:P][:P]

Lange musste ich warten auf den LP Termin bei MD. Da es mich bereits um 5:10 aus dem Bett getrieben hatte blieb noch etwas Zeit die Umgebung zu besuchen bzw. einen neuen Landkreis zu erreichen. Am liebsten wäre ich sogar noch ins Wasser gesprungen aber so viel Zeit war dann doch nicht.

Danke für das verstecken MayBe und den Beitrag zum Spiel.

Danke und VG Uli

trovata 09. maggio 2016 Drapodie ha trovato la geocache

Gestern Abend waren wir zum Foto machen vor Ort. Leider fanden wir zunächst die Mooreiche nicht, weil wir einfach nicht wussten, dass das kein Baum mehr ist. Asche auf mein Haupt. Mutti radelte heute noch einmal mit dem Rad zum Gesteinsgarten und wurde fündig. So konnten wir schließlich die Fragen beantworten.
Vielen Dank für den Cache!

trovata 16. settembre 2012 Kernspinner ha trovato la geocache

Nachdem klein Kernspinner die Ausrichtung der Düne nach seinen Wünschen neu ausgerichtet hatte konnen wir noch Steine gucken. Leider wollte die Technik nicht so ganz und die Fragen waren auf dem GPS nur teilweise zu lesen. Danke an MayBe für die Ersatzfrage und die Logfreigabe.

Beim nächsten Besuch schauen wir noch einmal genau hin.

Wir kamen leider erst spät hier vorbei, aber im Dunkeln ist der Garten der Steine auch ziemlich beeindruckend. Und die Suche nach der Mooreiche macht es auch nicht leichter. Schließlich haben wir aber alles gut gefunden, danke für den schönen Earth Cache.

Eine interessante Stelle, die zu Recht gleich mit ZWEI Earthcaches aufwarten kann.
Liebe Grüße aus dem Harz und danke fürs Zeigen
