Magnetic whinstone boulder from Stainton gravel beds.

These images show my daughter pointing out the small magnet stuck to this worn whinstone boulder.

The boulder is buried into the bank of Stainton beck.

The boulder is extremely tough i could not crack a piece off, but exposed enough fresh surface to be able to see it is Whinstone.
I placed the magnet over a thin piece of paper to make sure nothing was helping the magnet stick.
