Did You Know This ‘Game of Thrones’ Rock Only Found in Missouri?
It looks like it came straight from the Game of Thrones TV series. Seriously. But, no, this impressive rock is not set in the mythical land of Westeros. As a matter of fact, there are many who claim it can only be found in one certain part of Missouri.
Have you ever seen Dragon Scale Calcite? Take a look at this specimen which was up for auction not that long ago. This incredible rock specimen was found in Missouri. Game of Thrones really should look into this.
This ended up on my radar today as this guy claimed it's one of the rarest things you'll find and it can only be found in the "swamps of Missouri". Really.
Based on research I've done, this fella with the interesting moustache is correct. The Dragon Scale Calcite is only found in the Sweetwater Mine in Missouri. It's also pretty valuable as one on Etsy a couple years ago sold for around $3,000. Cha-ching.
Next time you have a friend that throws shade at you if you live in and/or grew up in Missouri, show him/her this. A rock that would make any dragon proud...Game of Thrones or otherwise only found in the Show Me State.
