The Thunder Stone

Standing Stone / Menhir


One of the many stones in the area with the title Thunder Stone.
This fella is a great big Shap granite boulder perched on the edge of a small quarry just beside the Shap to Crosby Rasvensworth road.
Shap Granite is a beautiful stone either polished or raw. Its pink colour comes from the feldspar within it's matrix and the large feldspar crystals, plagioclase feldspar I think.
