Geologist Finds Rock With Rare Formation That Resembles Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster
A geologist found an extremely rare lump of volcanic agate rock in Brazil.
- The rock looks exactly like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster.
- On the outside, the rock is oval-shaped and hard.
- When it is split in two, the halves reveal mirror images of the Cookie Monster!
A Californian geologist found the rock in the Rio Grande dol sul region near Soledade in Brazil.
When the two halves are brought together, the rock does not seem special. That is, it is brownish and shaped like an egg. On the inside, however, it is like no other rock. When the rock is split in two, it reveals two deep blue quartz crystals that are mirror images of the Cookie Monster. Due to this uncanny resemblance, several people have already offered Mr. Bowers $10,000 for the rock. Speaking to Daily Mail, he explained:
I think this is probably the most perfect Cookie Monster out there. I have seen others but here you have it complete (both sides) Lucas Fassari is actually the one who found it.
This is very unusual! There are a few famous agates out there: the owl, the scared face… there are many approximate ones but rare to find clear well defined like that.
‘Prices can be very high. I was proposed over $10,000 by 5 different buyers. Rare.
