You know I'm right; that's what it looks like. Horribly overcooked broccoli.
In fact, it's one of the rocks the oldest and I took up to Vulcan's North Quarry last night to a meeting of the FGMC, after multiple emailed offers of identification help if we could make it. We took a dozen or so of the oldest's finds and four of my late father's specimens, one of which is the broccoli rock above, which actually is composed of about four minerals.
We got names for all of the oldest's and three of my father's. Sadly, the broccoli aspect of the above remains unidentified. But we met a lot of incredibly nice people who were pleased to have a challenging one, the oldest enjoyed looking at their finds from a recent trip, and he absolutely beamed having his admired and identified.
We'll definitely go back.
