    • 2. Map of Grover Hot Springs <br />State Park<br />
    • 3. Hot Spring<br /><ul><li>The hot springs are very well known because </li></ul>it is associated with the faulting that developed <br />when the Sierra Nevada began to rise millions of<br />years ago. Surface water courses its way <br /> through the cracks in the earth’s crust until it <br />reaches hot rock thousands of feet below; then <br />it bubbles to the surface, dissolving minerals <br />along its way. For many years before the advent <br />of modern medicine, people sought the curative<br />powers they believed existed in the springs. <br />They were sure that the springs cured a long list <br />of chronic illnesses. The reason the water turns <br />the mud green is because of the mineral deposits.<br />These mineral deposits are laid down on the <br />surface by an oxidation reaction between the <br />mineral salts in the water.<br /> <br />
    • 4. The Many Flowers <br />of <br />Grover Hot Springs<br />State Park<br />

    • 8. Granite<br />Granite is from igneous rock, it is a very hard, crystalline, and primarily <br />composed of feldspar, quartz accompanied by one or more dark <br />minerals. The term "Granite" means "grain" in Latin word "Granum" <br />because of its granular nature. Granite is the hardest building stone, <br />and granite slabs and granite tiles occupy a prominent place among <br />dimensional stones. Due to its hardness, resistance to weathering, <br />capability to take mirror polish, fascinating colors and textural <br />patterns, granite slabs and granite tiles are extremely popular.<br />
    • 9. Rock Sample 2<br />
    • 10. Sandstone Erosion<br />Sandstone is in the sedimentary rock group which is mostly made up of <br />tiny grains of quartz. Most sandstone is formed in oceans, lakes and <br />rivers where tiny bits of rock and dirt settle to the bottom.  <br />
