Get Crackin’

Cracks often go unnoticed in nature and are seen as imperfections. However, they are necessary for rock weathering and exhibit beautiful shapes. Cracks can range from a webbed design of crocodile-like cracks in the pavement to a bold crevice of a fractured rock. Although we believe rocks are solid and seemingly water-resistant, water can indeed seep into cracks and decrease the strength of the rock. Repeated wet and dry cycles and chemical reactions from water can take their toll on a rock’s physical condition.
