MULTICOLORED GEOLOGICAL FORMATOIONS AROUND THE WORLD
On some locations and countries of the World there are some geological formations and mountains that create a visual effect like rainbows.
These formations and mountains are vibrant, colorful rock and sand formations created from a combination of tectonic plate movement, layered sediment and erosion. Basically, layered sandstone and minerals built up over millions of years and when tectonic plates moved, the colors began to appear. Combine that with water erosion, freezing and thawing and wind and voilà, epic rainbow-colored mountains appear. The Rainbow Mountains are generally cretaceous sandstones. The sand and silt was deposited with iron and trace minerals that provided it with the key ingredient to form the colors we see today.
