A second hornfels specimen revealed to the East London Museum

Members of the public brought in a strange bit of ‘rock’ which was found at a local beach. This specimen was the same as an earlier identification and deemed to be a metamorphic rock called hornfels. For a detailed explanation on interpreting this rock type please refer to the post on the 13th December 2013 .
