Rose Rock Cluster

 Indian folklore states that "God, looking down from heaven, decided to commemorate the courageous Cherokees. As the blood of the braves and the tears of the maidens fell to the ground, they were turned to stones in the shape of a rose." The Rose Rock is found in Oklahoma at the end of their journey on the "Trail of Tears". The State Flower of Georgia, the tribe's eastern home, is the Cherokee Rose. The Barite Rose is the State Rock of Oklahoma.

 The Rose Rock pictured above is acknowledged to be the largest cluster out of the ground in Oklahoma.. This rock is owned by Steve Meints and is at a Rock Shop called Natural Delights in Cherokee County.
