Geocache Description:


 

  Forgotten Roses

Most objects of interest in the Parque Nacional del Teide are appreciated with information boards. These two stone roses unfortunately not.

 

Forgotten Roses

Watch this EarthCache location on YouTube or visit our YouTube EarthCache Channel.

 

The Forgotten Roses are the result of a combination of processes which were initiated when the lava river got cold, which formed this singular geological structure. When the lava is solidifying, its mass contracts and cracks. That´s why when the rocks are exposed to the wind and weather, they sometimes tend to crack adopting some characteristic shapes. In some cases, when the rocks are broken into hexagonal prisms, organs are created. If the cracks are of a radial type, "stone petals" are easily loosen, producing the formation of roses.
