Minerals are always so mesmerizing. Containing complex compositions that make spectacular gemstones. A mineral is a “naturally occurring substance that is solid and inorganic representable by a chemical formula, and has an ordered atomic structure.” Fortunately for us, there are at present 4,900 known minerals. This means there is an exceptional amount of natural pieces of work made completely by the earth.
My favorite thing about minerals is hunting them in local areas. There is an endless amount of geode combinations that have diverse designs and patterns that don’t appear all too “natural” to begin with.
The way some minerals look like they possess smoke or some that seem like they contain a piece of the ocean inside of them. Even artists find ways to incorporate these stones into their artwork and make beautiful statues or an astonishing sculpture of some kind. Whether it be a garnet, amethyst, or pearl, gemstones are a marvelous thing of nature that everyone can agree upon.
The nature has an interesting way of expressing itself through rocks, that’s for sure. Check out some of these amazing rock formations…
