This amazing lump of volcanic rock was discovered in Brazil which looks like Sesame Street’s Cookie Monster. 

The unusual rock was recovered from the Rio Grande dol sul region near Soledade in Brazil. 

As you can see from the video, the two parts of the rock combine to create a perfect egg shape. But when they are split in half, the deep blue quartz crystals bear an uncanny resemblance to the Cookie Monster!!

Aside from being incredibly cool, this rock is so rare, it has been valued around $10,000! WOAH!

So, next time you’re in Brazil see if you can find yourself one of these cool rocks. I bet the kids would love it!!
