Rose Rock Cluster

 

Indian folklore states that "God, looking down from heaven, decided to commemorate the courageous Cherokees. As the blood of the braves and the tears of the maidens fell to the ground, they were turned to stones in the shape of a rose." The Rose Rock is found in Oklahoma at the end of their journey on the "Trail of Tears". The State Flower of Georgia, the tribe's eastern home, is the Cherokee Rose.  The Barite Rose is the State Rock of Oklahoma.

 

The Rose Rock pictured left is acknowledged to be  the largest cluster out of the ground  in the United States. This rock is owned by Steve Meints and is at a Rock Shop called Natural Delights in Cherokee County. See Steve's web site wwwnaturaldelights.webs.com

 

The Cherokee Rock Hound is on the trail of adventure. Sniffing out web sites and contacts for the Educators and Rock Hounds. Leading us to new exciting fines and information.
