Single $2.50 'Pancake Rocks' gummed stamp.

Formed 30 million years ago from minute fragments of plant and marine creatures, these limestone rocks were raised up by seismic action and are named for their distinctive visible layers. Wind, rain and seawater have gradually eroded and sculpted the rocks into the unique formations we see today. During high tides the sea bursts through the gaps in the rocks, creating vertical ‘blowholes’.
