“Alabama Crimson Rock is one of the rarest rocks and is actually accidentally man made. It was formed from old mining companies that were searching for new sources of coal.”

During their search for coal the miners would discard shale, sandstone and clay into piles that formed small mountains that eventually caught on fire and caused the discarded materials to metamorphosize into something completely new, never seen before in the world of rock.
