These rocks are broken off the landscape (by natural forces not by me).
the final shapes of these as my calculated guess tells me is that this lava clay containing mostly rounded "thunder egg" type small boulders have been washed down into the plain, as the plain weathered and flooded the rounded boulders have been torn from their sitting and washed down the river bed of now solid lava releasing even more boulders and so on. I have also collected some of the rounded thunder egg type boulders but there's not a lot interesting about a round rock so they are not posted.

This a private property but I have had approval from the land owner to remove trees and rocks, without pillaging the place of course.
Anyhoo, here's a couple to start with and some weights to give an idea of scale, these rocks have to be carried about 1/2 klm back to the car, trust me 20 kg starts to get very heavy after 100mtrs.

They remind me of the limestone islands of the east, I personally love collecting them and love having them as rocks of inspiration.
I have attempted to find the balance point on and I have inverted most of them for the photo benefit some with some small block of Hebel as balance aids.
Hope you enjoy them,

First one 25kg
