Rock Treasures in Wolmyeongdong

People say that the most expensive gemstone in the world is a diamond. But if you think about it, a diamond is simply a rock.

God, our Creator, did not create diamonds to be the only type of rock treasures in the world. He also created hundreds of different kinds of rocks treasures. Geologists say that it takes hundreds of thousands of years for a rock to form in soil. If you look at the rocks that were made while the earth was forming, it took many billions of years for them to form. They are even stronger that diamond.

When you look at it like this, all rocks are a type of gemstone. Marbles are gemstones, and so are rocks that are made of obsidian and amber. Rocks that have images and collectible rocks in particular are also a kind of rock treasure. Some of these rocks can cost up to a few hundred million dollars. Since the cost of rocks can rival or even surpass the value of gold in certain cases, rocks are treasures just like gold.


The Rock Museum in Wolmyeongdong

Without contaminating the environment, we have made the Wolmyeongdong Natural Temple with the design and support of the Trinity. Wolmyeongdong is now a temple that belongs to God. Within the Natural Temple is a Rock Museum where we have stacked seven different rock treasures in a line. The course is about 500 m long.

It is majestic, beautiful, and wondrous. Wolmyeongdong is indeed a palace dedicated to God. You can find rock treasures everywhere. Some are still hidden in the ground.

So that we can give glory and thanksgiving to God, our Creator who created these rock treasures, to the Holy Spirit, and to the Holy Son of the Trinity, we are holding annual Rock Festivals in the Natural Temple. I hope that you can enjoy these world renowned rock attractions and learn about their stories.
