What caused the perfect split in Saudi Arabia’s Al Naslaa rock?


From Geography lovers.

The Tayma oasis in Saudi Arabia is famous for its rock art and its historic legacy.

One particularly interesting feature of the Tayma region is the Al Naslaa rock formation – a sandstone block connected to what looks like an eroded natural pedestal. The rock is split through the middle by a clean and straight crack which looks almost as if the rock was sliced with a laser.

The block is also archaeologically significant because of an exquisite example of rock art that resembles a horse or camel that is engraved onto it. The block is in situ and the lower section of the block resembles what is called a ventifact. Ventifacts are geologic formations created by abrasion from windblown sand beating against a rock surface. This can create rocks with unusual shapes and very smooth surfaces.
