How to Breed Rocks

Introduction: How to Breed Rocks

About: I shouldn't have to tell you that using a dagger to undo this little, fiddly screw's a bad idea. AAAAARGH! big project ^^ so practically no chance of instructables from me till july, p'raps? maybe a bit late…

There comes a time in every person's life when they need to breed, this is a fact. What you're not told in the last year of primary school is that there comes a time in every rock's life when they need to breed. That's right, rocks breed, and by carefully controlling the breedstock, you can get different kinds of rock, isn't that great?!
In this Instructable, i'm going to show you how to breed rocks.

Step 1: The Stock

Any breeder will tell you that the stock is the most important part of breeding things. Any programmer will tell you GIGO, ergo if you want to get good baby rocks, you need to have good parent rocks.
I'm using a middle-aged basalt, and a gaudy ore. Peacock ore, to be exact.
You'll need a warm, dry place to put your rocks, and some way of ensureing that they're not disturbed when they're...doing whatever it is rocks do.

Step 2: The Miracle of Birth

So, now your rocks are in a box, with no chance of any interruption,. doing what comes naturally. After a while, if you open the box again, you should have some nice cute baby rocks, which you can sell as pets, or use to breed even better rocks.
Thanks for reading this instructable.

    If you're not able to get baby rocks put your rocks in a bigger place

    12 years later... Just last month the planets aligned and eventually they started to multiply! I guess it was just the universe we needed to set the stage.. Now enjoying a wonderful family of rocks, actually it's kinda getting out of hand, the floor of my apartment is bulging downwards from all the weight and I can hardly even open the door only slightly, just enough to slip through to head outside. My downstairs neighbours are complaining the ceiling is bulging down. Got any advice?

    Your rocks obviously aren't in the mood.

    You're obviously doing it wrong, cos i did it, and made an instructable on it. It's on the internet, it's got to be true.

    They're clearly past the stage where their relationship is new and exciting. They need something to get the excitement back. I recommend a candlelit dinner in the park, followed by some wine. That should get them in the mood.

    Marinus, It's fake, I'm thirteen. It's impossible to "Breed" a rock... Just don't believe every thing you see on the internet, and the other people here saying it worked, are just playing along.

    It's not fake! I've seen other people do it and after 12 years of trying I finally bred my first couple of rox last month!! I guess the rocks just need the magical moment where all the planets align.
