Dragon Stone Found on the south shore of Lake Erie. Thinking that it must be some kind of a joke, I took it to the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, and showed it to Dr. David Saja, curator and head of Mineralogy. He examined it under magnification, and said that there was nothing phony about it, that it was a remarkable work of nature. He said the stone was Red Iron Sandstone inside a Tan Sandstone, slightly metamorphosed into Quartzite. How is that for strange and unusual? --Adam L.
