Artist's Description

A very big thank you to all my friends here on Redbubble that greeted my last post with such enthusiasm. There has been a lot going on in my life in the last year and I had to pull back from my participation on Redbubble for a while. I really do appreciate all your wonderful support. Thank you so much.

Corroboree Rock is an outstanding dark grey column of dolomite. It is of great importance to the Aboriginal people of the region.

The rock itself is an outcrop of dolomite from the Bitter Springs Formation originally laid down in salty lakes 800 million years ago. Dolomite is a soft sedimentary fine grained rock. It is very similar to limestone except magnesium carbonate is the dominant compound rather than calcium carbonate. At the base of the rock you can see dark grey and light grey streaky blobs of ‘dalmation rock’. A ring of low ground surrounding the rock makes it look like an obelisk.
