Geologist Finds Rare Formation Inside Rock That Looks Exactly Like The Cookie Monster

Geologist Finds Rare Formation Inside Rock That Looks Exactly Like The Cookie Monster

A geologist has discovered a rare and unusual looking rock that happens to look just like the Cookie Monster.

The lump of volcanic rock was found in the Rio Grande dol sul region near Soledade in Brazil by California-based geologist Mike Bowers.

Discussing the discovery of the agate with MailOnline, Bowers said: "I think this is probably the most perfect Cookie Monster out there.

"I have seen others but here you have it complete (both sides) Lucas Fassari is actually the one who found it."

On the outside, the rock looks fairly ordinary and is in an egg-like formation. However once split into two, the rock's sapphire insides seem to immaculately form the shape of Sesame Street's biscuit-loving monster.

Bowers said: "This is very unusual! There are a few famous agates out there: the owl, the scared face... there are many approximate ones, but rare to find clear well-defined like that."

Despite making the unusual discovery at the end of last year, Bowers only just uploaded a video of the stunning rock to social media alongside a soundtrack taken from Sesame Street where Cookie Monster sings about the letter 'C'.

Followers were loving the quirky gem, with one user commenting: "This is the best thing I'll see all week. Maybe month!"

Another added: "If this had been cut this way anytime before 1966 NOBODY would care much about the face.

"But the fact that it was cut this way specifically in a time where commercial success of Cookie Monster has made it to where people can instantly recognise him is such an amazing coincidence."

This rock is known as an agate, which are primarily formed within volcanic and metamorphic rocks. They consist of chalcedony and quartz as their primary components, and also come in a wide variety of colours.
