Way back on October 14, 2014, I highlighted the microscope photography of Dr. Gary Greenburg. His website, Sandgrains, has fascinating explanations of something we take for granted every day — sand. You must stop by his website and read the explanations yourself.

I know. A whole nuther universe….
I’ve seen pictures of it before and I was really surprised by all the beautiful forms and the tiny little shells and the colours. Unfortunately our eyes can’t see all the little things unless we have a microscope but I wonder what else our eyes can’t see, same with our ears, we can’t hear certain tones…..it makes me think what it is what we are missing.
Isn’t it amazing? I never knew that. Each one is its own gemstone.
Really amazing when you see sand so much enlarged !! Love it !!
It’s the fact that sand is silica and the shininess and regular shapes suggest it was melted.
Woah! What a thought! Not polished by water?

Viewing these images, and seeing how shiny the grains are, reminds me that they were all forged in fire. And not destroyed. Something to ponder.
what amazing colours!
