Greetings! In this first entry I enclose a few photographs from a trip to the eastern Alps. This place has amazing geology and the views are spectacular. A natural cave system is a popular attraction here. It was amusing to see shops selling “minerals” and “rock ore” such as Amazonite, Pyrite, Quartzite, etc.
Hi all, welcome to the blog of www.geocene.net. Here you will find opinions, thoughts, personal logs, and information related to Geology. Invited authors will write short pieces (blog entries) on Geology. Readers can leave their comments or contact the authors directly. These entries/content are the opinions of the authors and we at www.geocene.net or http://blogatgeocene.net do not assume responsibility for the posts.

Again a warm welcome to all and happy blogging!
Pallavaram, Chennai, India is well known for the rock type Charnockite (ranging from Enderbrite to Biotite). Soil is probably ferrous in nature. The rocks are metamorphosed granite. Low hillocks have been dug out using manual methods of quarrying. Rainwater has collected forming deep pools. This area is protected under the natural resources act. Here are a few shots of the pools and rocks.
