Petraphobia or petrophobia (from Greek petros, meaning "rock", "stone") is the fear of rocks. This phobia is often caused by negative experiences involving rocks back in the childhood, like getting hit by a rock. Sufferers would stay away from rocks, boulders, and even pebbles. It would be best for them to stay inside the building while not having rocks on display.
