Quartz Mineral Specimen

Way back in the day I was given the option to study Geology at college, we had to pick and Geology was my second choice. I got into my first choice, Terrain and Water. My love for rocks and minerals has remained while my education went in a slightly different direction.

The lovely specimen of quartz is my spouse’s, but I adore is. I love it for is size and colour, how it reflects light and the multitude of layers within it.

I keep it on the window sill of our library so it can glow in the warmth of the sun and show off that the beauty that it has stored inside.
