Boulder
In geology, a boulder is a rock fragment with size greater than 25.6 centimetres (10.1 in) in diameter.[1] Smaller pieces are called cobbles and pebbles. While a boulder may be small enough to move or roll manually, others are extremely massive.[2] In common usage, a boulder is too large for a person to move. Smaller boulders are usually just called rocks or stones. The word boulder is short for boulder stone, from Middle English
Middle English
bulderston or Swedish bullersten.[3] In places covered by ice sheets during Ice Ages, such as Scandinavia, northern North America, and Siberia, glacial erratics are common. Erratics are boulders picked up by ice sheets during their advance, and deposited when they melt.[2] They are called "erratic" because they typically are of a different rock type than the bedrock on which they are deposited
