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.

Geologists use these features as clues to help reconstruct past environments, and to predict where important resources are!
