    What kind of rocks are these?
    Found these rocks and they are light blue and gray. With flash it shows a bit more purple. Anyway, I was curious as to what they were.

    Sorry, accidentally asked the question without pictures. These were found in Western North Carolina (blue ridge mtns) on a cow path made into the side of a hill.

    Thanks



    I added some larger pics so they are easier to see.

    The Blue Ridge are granite based mountains. I can see quartz, hematite( red iron) , feldspar. Since these mountains are a product of plate techtonics, you will find many different minerals all pressed together. There is no one name for these rocks except granite, with other mineral inclusions.
