Tea-flavored intertwined palmiers

Where you can find this rock : Bentenjima Island, Shimoda City

伊豆半島がまだ海底にあった時代、海の底に積もった砂や火山灰などの堆積物が、水流の影響を受け、美しい綾状の堆積層を残しました。この現象を観察することにより、何百万年も昔のその場所の水流の向きを知ることができます。またこの模様が好まれ、江戸時代には石材としても人気がありました。

When Izu Peninsula was a collection of submarine volcanoes several million years ago, the surrounding seabed had sediments of sand and volcanic ash. These sediments were shaped by the marine current over the years, leaving this beautiful intertwined pattern which we can now see on the strata in Bentenjima Island. Ancient current directions can be identified by studying the cross pattern on the rock. Due to this unusual twisted pattern, this cross lamina rock was very popular as building material in the Edo era.
