Evil riddle #14
‘If you wish to see my castellated layers, look hard amongst empty shells!
Oh! and don’t forget to look; you may find a dyke!’
a) What exactly am I?
b) With what is my dyke associated?
I just liked this image a lot. This is one agate i would really love to have.
Image comes from this link:
Quote his “Evility”: “I think we will do without the AGATE DYKE!
Refer to Spica’s 01.24 post, the laguna Agate next to the ammonite shows a beauty in the SW part of the specimen!
Real name is
Dilatation Dyke of Escapement – ie where excess fluid bursts from the amygdale and leaves a healed crack on the outside of the ‘stone’ Hope you liked this one!!”
