Pretty rocks in Sydney

31 08 2014

One of my friends is a big fan of pretty rocks and takes the most amazing micro photographs of them. So, when I saw that a whole floor at the Australian Museum in Sydney was dedicated to rocks and geological stuff I just had to go.

And I can sure see why she is fascinated with them — there are some AMAZING structures and colours below the dirt!

Here are a couple of the photos I took.


That line of stones shows the colour variations in sapphires found in Australia. And you thought sapphires were just blue!
