Types of coordinates

Upload up to three close-ups of the stone. The image should be sharp and as high resolution as possible. Ideally use a white or light background (e.g. light sand, white cloth or paper).
For a better assessment of the rock type, it helps to have several photos of the stone.
Upload up to three nature photographs of the location where you found the stone, preferably with a horizon and in landscape format. The landscape should be recognizable, e.g. a beach, mountain or your garden; with or without people.
