Some more stones from my homeland. In front you see plenty of shells, sediment rock composition.
Minette is a type of mineral deposit, consisting of iron ore of sedimentary origin, found in the south of Luxembourg and in Lorraine. Minette ore was deposited in the Early and Middle Jurassic.The term "Minette" came from French miners. It is a diminutive form of "la mine", and might be translated as "little mine“ because of relatively poor iron content of between 28% and 34%.

A beautifully composted shot with a perfect square format. I love the pile of minette and the description of what it is and what I am looking at. When my husband and I visited Provence a few years back, I wasn't much interested in rocks. These days I'm much more interested and actually have a large rock tumbler for the rocks I find to polish! :) www.ipernity.com/doc/290645/album/1259884
