Such was the case for geologist Mike Bowers, who made a very peculiar discovery in a rock recorded by his colleague Lucas Fassari in the Rio Grande dol region near Soledade in Brazil. Once split, both sides of the stone look exactly like the cookie monster. It was found in November, but the discovery was only recently revealed by Bowers with a video posted on Facebook, and it wasn’t long before the muppet-adorned stone went viral.
Externally, the stone is by no means unusual, but the way it looks inside is a dead alarm clock Sesame Street‘s resident cookie-loving muppet. His face is made of blue quartz crystals with a perfectly placed hole that makes up the biscuit monster’s happy, toothless smile. It even has the muppets’ eyes to complete the look, and you can almost hear the cookie monster’s voice when you see them.
According to MailOnline, Bowers said of the discovery, “This is very unusual! There are a couple of famous agates out there: the owl, the scared face … there are many approximate but seldom clearly defined. I think this is probably that most perfect cookie monster out there. I’ve seen others, but here you have it complete (both sides). Lucas Fassari is actually the one who found it. “
Bowers also said the rock’s rarity makes it incredibly valuable, revealing that it has already been offered over $ 10,000 from five different potential buyers.
