International Rock Day is widely celebrated on July 13th annually for people to learn more about rocks and their importance. To commemorate this day, you can experience the heritage, culture and ecological importance of the rocks and stones found in Meghalaya with the help of Northeast India’s only known Rock Museum – Ever Living Museum.
The origins and creators of International Rock Day are unknown. However, this day is celebrated to honour its benefits to mankind and to urge people to learn about the science behind different rocks and their usefulness. A rock here is a giant lump of one or more hard minerals that formed naturally and were shattered off of larger boulders.
