Black and White together!

Never seen before such a beautiful and obvious geological fault/dislocation:
The black sediment on the left is brown coal, the white sediment on the right are fine sands.
The pictures were taken in a daylight coal mining during a geological excursion to East Germany.
The coal derives from forrests (for mostly cedar trees).
One fascinating fact: Not the whole wood became coal.
Inside the coal there were everywhere parts of trees that were just only “dried”.
Holding it in your hands it was like parts of wood, that dried some weeks or months in the sun. But actually these trees/this wood are/is 13 Million years old – from Tertiary period!
