Yehliu Geopark(Ginger,Candle Rocks)
Taiwan

在海蝕平台區,面積較大的平坦窪地上經常蓄積海水,導致岩體發生溶蝕的現象,造成一片盤狀的平淺凹陷區。

形成薑石的岩層中含有不規則結核,結核四周的質地比較軟,經過侵蝕之後凹下,使較硬的結核就像浮出地表般,再經風與海浪的不斷侵蝕下,形成飽經風霜的粗糙外表,而薑石表面縱橫交錯的紋路,則是當結核還深埋在地層中時,因地殼擠壓造成的破裂面。這些類似老薑根節的紋路,在地質學上稱為「節理」。因粗糙的外表,再加上灰中帶黃的色澤,酷似做菜用的老薑,所以稱做薑石。

曾有人形容這些燭台是仙女遊歷野柳岬所遺留下來的,為此地增添了不少神話。燭台石的形成須有特殊的岩層、結核構造,及臨海的地理位置,終年接受海浪的衝擊等。
