Oman’s Geological Heritage.

Oman’s Geological Heritage – Ken Glennie (Editor).

Amazon link.This is a book that is well worth reading; for anyone who has wondered how some of the magnificent rock formations found in Oman have been formed.

It has a wealth of pictures, diagrams and descriptions of Oman’s geology, from remnants of the ice age, fossils on the top of Jebel Shams to signs of a far wetter period in Oman’s history, which can be seen from rock erosion.

Meteorites from Mars, the Geodes of Dhofar, one of the largest caves in the world not to mention the abundant mineral wealth found in the country.

Update: I notice this is getting rather hard to find – for those here in Muscat, book shops still have copies.
