Arran and Malta geology – same shit, different day?

arran malta geology map rocksLooking at the isle of Arran’s location and the colours of its geology maps you would expect it to be as geology different as possible from the Mediterranean limestone islands of Malta and Gozo.

You would expect the isle of Arran to be proper rocky, especially as it is part of rocky Scotland.

If by some bizarre freak of nature there are geology variations of a similar theme on these islands could they be explained by normal geology and EU geology?

Similar Arran and Malta geology? No chance.

Arran Malta
The Maltese islands of Malta, Gozo, St Paul’s Island (Selmunett), Camino, Filfla are tiny limestone islands with no volcanic activity or other types of native rocks. Malta has 5 layers of different limestone.

Amazingly the first and last limestone layers are virtually identical in chemical composition and even micro fossil types. A staggering coincidence considering the changes in the local, Mediterranean and world environments that should have been occurring during the long time scale it took to deposit and form those different limestone layers.

If there are similar geology would this show that EU geology can be scalable or transferable? That similar processes on very different materials can produce similar end results? As is even being observed on asteroids, comets, moons and other planets in our solar system.

Or will there sensibly be no or very few similar geology between them?

Rock, Paper, Scissors or Snap?

Due to where I have lived I have very little experience of rocky environments. Especially since discovering Electric Universe geology. I have only quickly glanced at Arran on some maps, I have not tried to study its rocky types and have carried out no internet research on Arran apart from finding some of the geology map images.

Limestone Malta’s geology
arran maltaAt the moment I believe the Maltese islands show geological signs of EU catastrophe events. The interesting rock map colours of Arran and that latitude across Scotland, that Arran is an ‘island in a bay’ also suggest to me that it has been terraformed and transmuted by similar EU catastrophism and electromagnetic forces.

This list is of some of the outstanding Malta EU geology that could be found, or a variation of it, on the isle of Arran.

  • Limestone dykes, dyke swarms and
  • Discharges between mini semi circular bays or inlets on islands
  • Vertical ‘fault’ cracks
  • Electric/plasma discharge swirls where material is very different to surrounding limestone
  • Limestone ‘fulgurites’ (discharges or currents flowing along the surface)
  • Small sheer ‘walls’ on side of slopes where limestone ‘fulgurites’ or lines are found. The Great Fault escarpment a larger variation of these walls?
  • Horst and graben valleys and hills running parallel to each other
  • Quartz rock of different colours and crystal sizes including ‘double layer quartz’
  • Red conglomerate or breccia (mixed variety of materials)
  • Sandy beaches with stones and different coloured sands
  • Semi circular bays
  • Sinkholes (EDM or discharge craters?)
  • Strange shaped hills and hillocks (Qolla’s)
  • Different layers or ages of limestone
  • Out of place small ‘rolling hills’ or solitary rounded hill top

Possible Isle of Arran geology?

A few things that I would hope to occur or variations of them. Not an exhaustive list but some things I will be especially looking for.

  • Dykes, intrusions, upwellings, outcrops if not made of sedimentary rock
  • Quartz and other ‘precious’ minerals, rocks and crystals. As the colourful maps must show a variety of rock types then there should be a greater variety of precious minerals
  • If Arran has had powerful electromagnetic forces around it then the transmutation of material into precious or semi precious metals?
  • Variations of similar types of rock
  • Cliffs and shoreline that seems to end sharply or have disappeared as though vaporised into thin air
  • Large boulders and boulders in the sea

Similar very large geology features

When looking at the geology map colours Arran has 2 different half’s of the island. Similar Malta’s Great Fault separating it in half. Which eventually led to the British military creating the Victoria Lines along the top of the escarpment.

Arran has a semi circular bay with an island on the edge where the shoreline was. Gozo has the similar Dwejra Bay with Fungus Rock (General’s Rock or Hagret il-General). Fungus rock is where the locally famous cynomorium (Maltese mushroom, Fungus Melitensis, Gherq is-Sinjur) was discovered by the Knights of Malta. Does Arran have any special plans that have evolved on it, perhaps a special Orchid?

Malta and Arran fossils?
arran malta fossils
Malta is famous for its amazing fossils that are found concentrated in tiny areas like at the Ghar Dalam Cave. Especially interesting are the fossils of dwarf animals, micro mammals and micro birds – such as dwarf elephants, dwarf hippopotamus.

Arran should have fossils. Will Arran have any dwarf or mega flora and fauna fossils? Arran could have, if they survived the catastrophe(s) that shaped the island, its own electromagnetic evolution or catastrophic evolution of some lifeforms
