Volcanic Bombs filled with olivine and other minerals we found on sunday by a little walk trough fields around Dreiser Weiher/Germany.

You want to see how approx. 50kg looks like in a BMW X5?

My first big rock find was an olivine bomb in Arizona when I was 5. We were out there looking and I picked up a rock that looked like a brown potato, and the other side was a broken face showing the beautiful mixture of olivine and dark pyroxene crystals. I've been hooked ever since.
