Little Crystals…

October 3, 2008

So this picture is not of littler crystals but of sand. It is taken of a sand sample on a microscope. The close up shows the different types of minerals that make up that sand sample. Since I am  taking a Geo class I could try to tell you what minerals, but only if you want me to.

I love how the microscope makes it unrecognizable of sand. And even though it isn’t 100% focused (better than my first two attempts) the minerals’ edges are still somewhat defined making a cool texture of different types of minerals.

    Fascinating shot, and I certainly wouldn’t have guessed it was sand.

    It looks like a dragon’s hoard of jewels!
