Image Caption: The Tifernine dunes (note, the Tifernine dunes are below the "beak" of sandstone rock) were created when
the dark sandstone rocks trapped sand. Winds then piled the sand into dunes up to 457.2 m (1,500 ft). The
color of the sandstone is due to a desert varnish. The varnish is composed of manganese, iron oxides,
hydroxides, and clay minerals.
