About this blog

This blog is a showcase for examples of some of the earth’s natural resources, referred to broadly as Rocks, Minerals and Crystals.

My amateur interest in geology – “the science which deals with the physical structure and substance of the earth, their history, and the processes which act on them” – has become something of a fascination. I love to handle the items, photograph and magnify them to see more of their detail, and research their origins, compositions.

Many of us already know we are not totally unrelated to the minerals and chemical elements that compose Minerals, Rocks and Crystals, as we have lots of them within our bodies and their presence is essential for health and life, eg calcium, potassium, sodium, copper, magnesium and zinc etc.
