I want to apologise for any inconvenience caused by the gallery being closed for much of the past couple of months.
I’m not sure at this stage when things will be back to normal, hopefully soon.
Please phone before visiting to check whether or not the gallery is open.
Thanks for understanding,

The Ranford Formation is a freak geological structure in the Kimberley Region of Western Australia.
It is situated close to and beneath the waters of Lake Argyle.
The formation is host to a number of stone varieties not found anywhere else on earth.
Formed some 600 million years ago when Australia was part of a supercontinent and animal life had not yet evolved, these stone types have mostly been washed away. Some pockets remain, with the best known being:-
Zebra Stone - a rhythmically banded indurated siltstone in which striping occurs contrary to the bedding plane. No satisfactory explanation for the regular banding has been established. Very little remains.
Ranford Ribbonstone - is formed of the same elements as Zebra Stone but with a greater diversity of strikingly coloured patterns. Striping is absent.
Okapi Stone - horizontal pink and brown layers occur as a capstone over deep sediments. The pinks have a vibrancy in common with the colours of Ribbonstone.
Rainbow Stone - occurs in a separate formation. Swirling colours are linked to iron nodules deposited in a fine grained sandstone. Rainbow shaped bands leap from one iron rich area to another.
