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.

    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.

    Yes, secret rock farms that breed them.

    The birth rate is very low as it is all done *under pressure and often at ~gunpoint, which of course upsets the rocks and thus spoils the fertility of the feedstock and %when new rocks are born they are often deformed and die shortly after.

    • That part IS true.

    no its real. I tried it, just make sure the rocks like each other. And give them time, and you don't want to walk in on them.

    Nice instructable. Thanks for sharing.
    Can’t say I endorse this instructable. Rocks have rights and more important, they have feelings. You just don’t put rocks together and expect them to breed.
    In the expression “Nature take it’s course”, the key word is “Nature”, therefore, the vast outdoors.
    Just Google the expression “pedras parideiras” and find out how some rocks breed in the natural environment.
