Easily one of the most extraordinary rock formations in the world, the Ringing Rocks of Montana have a unique quality of ringing like bells when they are struck with a hammer. It is believed that the way the rocks are placed next to one another, as well as the high iron content of the rocks are the principal reason for their chiming. An interesting fact is that if one of its rocks is removed from its original spot and placed else where, there is no ringing.
