Cookie Monster Agate

A geologist in Brazil found a geode that, when split open, has an uncanny resemblance to a Muppet we all know and love- Cookie Monster! Mineral specialist Mike Bowers posted the rock to Facebook in a video with the appropriate musical accompaniment. The blue quartz with the unique cut might fetch a pretty penny.

Mike wrote: “I think this is probably the most perfect Cookie Monster out there.

“I have seen others but here you have it complete on both sides.

“This is very unusual. There are a few famous agates out there: the owl; the scared face. But it is rare to find one so well defined like this.

“Prices can be very high. I was proposed over $10,000 (£7,300) by five different buyers.”

Yeah, that's good enough for me. You can buy a lot of cookies with that kind of dough. -via reddit
