Gorgeous Treasures From the Earth


Can you guess what this is? Besides pretty.


How about this stuff? Hint – it’s underfoot.


This stuff is actually sand, magnified 250x. Sand, of course, not being an entity of itself, but a mix of bits of worn down shells, glass, minerals, skeletons…

Dr. Gary Greenberg of Sandgrains.com takes photos of sand and even has a book of photos.

These are making the rounds on the Internet, but I think are worth sharing again, just for their sheer beauty.
