    Murphys - A Little Town with a Big Reputation
    by Michael Reilly of

    Murphys stones are an amazing outcropping of stones caused by continental plates shifting, revealing sedimentary limestone with quartz intrusions - resulting in beautiful weather-worn displays of nature at its finest.


    Murphys stones are often admired in a base, in gardens, in a bonsai display -- or best of all -- admired in the wild in their natural state.


    NOTE: In the spirit of honor, stone collectors are urged to use utmost courtesy and never trespass on others' property. Always ask landowners' permission to enter their land. Remember that landowners also honor their stones.

    Email and I'll send you some photos. Happy trails!
