McMaster Rocks

Rocks formed all over the world can be found in our McMaster gardens, pathways, and architecture.By observing different features of a rock, one can learn a lot about the environment in which it was deposited in. Geologists use these features as clues to help recontruct past environments, and to predict where important resources are!
