The Dragon’s Eye Stone Mine in the UK

What looks like a scene out of Indiana Jones or a J.R.R. Tolkien novel, the Dragon’s eye stone mine was discovered at the Hall of Giants stone mine in Lancashire UK.

The underground adventurers who discovered the mine in Northern England took the picture using a fisheye lens — the surface is actually flat rather than curved.

The dragon’s eye formed as a result of a collapsed mine roof that exposed different color sediments.

We can’t be the only ones just waiting for the stone to blink.
