what else don't you see?

Out Standing
Sliema a sandstone beach and then this. Where did this come from?

Sandstone Beach?
Quartz (multicoloured/layered) - different minerals and a mini arete?

Crystal Rock - JohnPeel



A out(crop?)standing circular mound with a large mixture of minerals/rocks, from whites, reds, blacks, oranges and Quartz in a variety of colours, thickness and forms. Perhaps the most important feature of JohnPeel is the tail like a mini arÍte/ridge leading to another area of transformed rock and where deep red soil is coming out of the cliff.

JohnPeel at Surfside, Sliema, Malta

JohnPeel must have been seen by most Maltese as it is beside the Sliema Sea Front (Tower Road), on the beach by the very popular Surfside Bar and Restaurant with free sun beds in the summer with great music, food and a bar open late into the chilled out night.
What more do you want with JohnPeel 50 yards away, the warm clear Mediterranean Sea with those strange holes and some possible underwater "Cart Ruts" lines nearby. Of course you can not have everything, so watch out for those stinging Jelly Fish when itís an inshore breeze.

Have you got the minerals?


Around some of the outside of this Discharge Point you have thick lines of different rock, one part is very thick quartz which looks very much like Tigers-Eye Quartz. According to "Gemstones of the World" book this Quartz is formed where the iron from the decomposed crocidolite has oxidised to a brown color, keeping the fibrous structure."

A similar form of powergon (round shape with solid outside line, different material inside and a tail) is found on the beaches of North Norfolk (Beeston Bump) with the Flint Circles.

Everything about this powergon is stunning but of great interest are the mini fissures with Quartz linings (red and black). The Quartz plating can be a few inches apart and then join together to be a Quartz double layer. These plate are EDM fissures created by the Plasma Discharge Event, which at the moment we would assume was like a lightning strike but it can not be ruled out that it came from the ground and went upwards as part of the XEchange.

Quartz is a "replacement" mineral, especially on an island like Malta. It is found in all the EU (Electric Universe) places you would expect it to be associated with. Maybe it is a replacement mineral but the host rock has been converted into Quartz by a Plasma Discharge Event. With the Quartz plating in the fissures the missing fissure material itself.

Mini ridge/arete?


JohnPeel is made up of the craziest mixture of minerals/rock you will ever see on a sandstone beach. It does not make sense unless you follow it with gEUlogy eyes and think of it as a pinch point for the Birth Of Rock . You can follow the paths of the electric current where the material is transformed into varied forms.

Beside this immense powergon is also what looks to be an EDM Sea Side "Crater" with its own classic small flat electric discharge Rim Shot Crater.

Surfside Restaurant - the only place this Summer

Where else can you get free sunbeds and have access to a bar, music and food all day and nearly all night? Good snorkelling area and easy access by the bus. All this and one of the most amazing Electroblemes within a few meters.
Surfside is on the popular Maltese beach (sandstone) in Sliema (Tower Road) and is a superb place to chill out during the day or watch the sunset with a drink or 3. You can sit up top and be part of the great view and special atmosphere of Malta as the sun sets or relax outside on the terrace in the middle section.
If you want it a bit more lively then there are plenty of seats and shade downstairs by the beach bar - relax with a pint of local lager called Cisk (pronouned "Ch isk"), listen to the music and taste the sea as you will only be a few meters away from the surfside.
If its a bit cold or raining then the middle section has floor to high ceiling windows, so you can keep warm but still be beside the seaside.

Surfside will also deliver their food but deliveries are only to the local areas. They also do take-aways. For a different Pizza try the Calzone Pizza but if you don't like mushrooms then remember to ask not to have them or only a few. Who knew that Ambrosia is hard boiled eggs on a folded Pizza?

All the great local old yellow Malta buses from St Julians or Paceville and are going to Valletta will take you to the Surfside Grill, as the bus stops outside a Kiosk within 25 yards.

The Surfside Restaurant website says or did say "FREE BOTTLE OF HOUSE WINE FOR EVERY 2 PEOPLE DINING WHEN YOU MENTION OUR WEB SITE!" but check their website to make sure this special offer is still on.

Strange Lump appeared?


Is JohnPeel a developing Qolla from a large Powergon? It has the Powergon shape (point with a tail attached). It may be the start of a Qolla as there are other possible mini Qolla's or starter Qolla's nearby. One is where JohnPeels tail (ridge) finishes and another Qolla (not like JohnPeel though) can be seen down the beach (south). This one has a very large and wide tail attached to it.

JohnPeel and the other electroblemes beside Triq It-Torri show all the signs of gEUlogy. A must see if you are in Malta and with SurfSide so close its a perfect location for a day out on a Maltese (rocky) beach.
