Chocolate Hole Rocks

chocolate hole rockThe reddish-colored rocks found in the vicinity of Chocolate Hole appear to be made of compressed sand. Often used in native stone walls, they break apart more easily than the harder volcanic rocks found in most other parts of the island.

Dan Boyd let us know that the white rock is called Marl from which gypsum and cement is made.

One thought on “Chocolate Hole Rocks”

  1. These rocks might look younger but they are actually part of the Water Island formation which contains the oldest rocks in this area. Supposedly formed at great depth underwater.
    Maria Bluff and the NW point of Devers Bay have some great examples.
    Great to see Jacob, he’s almost all grown up. I see a lot of Habiba in him.
