Volcanic Agate Found In Brazil Resembles Cookie Monster Muppet

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

UNIDENTIFIED ACTOR: (As Cookie Monster) Cookie.

MARTIN: A geologist found volcanic agate that, when you cut it open, looks exactly like the face of Cookie Monster. Mike Bowers found this cookie-scarfing rock back in November, and its rare nature could give it a price of $10,000. Yeah. Science is cool. It's MORNING EDITION.
