It’s worth a lot of cookies.
A stone recently discovered in Brazil could fetch more than $ 10,000 – because it looks like an eerie resemblance to “Sesame Street’s” Cookie Monster, according to reports.
Open, the volcanic rock consists of blue quartz crystals with holes that mirror the iconic cookie-loving character’s round white eyes and gaping smiles.
Geologist Mike Bowers, who currently owns the unusual agate gemstone, told The Sun that he has seen other similar rocks, but that “this is probably the most perfect Cookie Monster out there.”
“It’s rare to find one as well defined as this,”
Bowers posted footage of the cliff on his Facebook account this month – saying he has since been offered $ 10,000 for it by five different buyers.
“Prices can be very high,” he told the website.
The agate – a type of quartz found in ancient lava cavities – was extracted from the Rio Grande do Sul region of Brazil in November, Bowers said.
