A mineral similar to Sesame Street Cookie was discovered in Brazil

(ORDO NEWS) — A resident of Brazil became the owner of an amazing mineral three months ago, but only recently showed it to the public. The find quickly gained a large number of likes on Facebook and began to spread across the Web.

The find belongs to geologist Michael Bowers. The reason for the popularity of the mineral is easy to explain: it looks like the character of “Sesame Street” – Cookie Cookie. The man did not even know about the popularity of the hero, recognized as part of the world cultural heritage.

Korzhik tweeted that he is not a geologist, but the rock definitely looks like him. According to Michael Bowers, he received the mineral from Lucas Fassari, who discovered it in the state of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil). The man bought a pebble, but could not post a photo, as he was sick with coronavirus.

Agate is a type of quartz that forms in volcanic rocks. The cavities are formed by the gas in the hot lava. The silica-rich water flows through the holes. After a while, the liquid evaporates, and the substance remains on the walls. This is how crystals are obtained.
