Gorlech Stones

Once thought to be the fossilized remains of some sort of pre-historic animal, Gorlech Stones are now understood to be nodules of mudstone with lines of calcite running through them.  Some can be seen as you walk through the village of Abergorlech, in peoples gardens.  They are very rare and are found nowhere else in the world.  Gorlech is the name of the river in Abergorlech, as well as the name of the famous mountain bike trail that starts here.
