Jory the lava rock meets up with his old friend Slate and finds that she has changed a lot in the past a couple of million years!
ROCK: Whoa, thanks a lot sea lion. I was enjoying sitting there the last 2 million years.
SEA LION: Ar, ar, you’re welcome. About time you saw the world!
NARRATION: It wasn’t long before a kid named Jesse saw Jory shining in the sun.
JESSE: Look, dad, a lava rock!
NARRATION: Jory found himself on an adventure going somewhere he’d never been before.
ROCK: My old friend.
SLATE: It’s been millions of years.
ROCK: The last time I saw you, you were a mud bed, and look at you now. You’re slate. A fine grained foliated metamorphic rock that is created by the alteration of shale or mud stone by low grade regional metamorphism.
SLATE: You were some bubbling lava, now here you are volcanic rock, a rock formed from magma that erupted from a volcano.
ROCK: Is that turquoise next to you?
SLATE: You mean the opaque mineral that occurs in beautiful hues of blue, blue green, and yellow green? Chemically turquoise is a hydrosphosphate of copper and aluminum.
ROCK: Yeah, the Denne have many stories about turquoise.
SLATE: You, you talking about me? I’m fallen sky stone.
NARRATION: So our two old, old, old friends and their new friends spent the next many years sharing many stories about rocks and minerals.
