Natural Beauty

I have completely fallen in love with jewels from the earth. The natural sparkle of these beauties makes me happy.

A collection of shining quartz

The formation of the tiny needle quartz points boggles my mind!

Fragile gypsum crystals

Beautiful blue celestine

...your stunningly beautiful crystals have that fete et fleur magic about them, as in dreamlike!
They indeed inspire me to seek a few of my own:) well as that beautiful shell and stand display!
xo, Rosemary

Chère Nancy!

Bonjour! And I too have a place in my heart (a very LARGE space!) for anything that shines. I am especially drawn to CARBON, i.e., DIAMONDS! But a quartz crystal will do! These are lovely photos and I bet in your home these jewels shine divinely!

So happy to see you in Blogland! I saw your comment, and I just want to be sure, are you participating? Will you be able to? Just verify that you are so I can put your name on the list. I am adding the links as the answers come, so let me know when you can. LOVE YOU!

Oh so pretty Nancy! I have taken quartz for granted much too long I can see. Your photos of it are so lovely!
Have a wonderful week Nancy!
hugs from here...

What a sparkly sight for sore eyes. The quartz and you, sweets!

Bonjour ma chère! I came over to remind you about the party and to see if you were still in it, and to my delight, I see the banner, first thing. I am excited to see what genius you will share with us, and where you'll take us! (I'm actually going to France again next summer with my high school students and your brother will be meeting me in Paris after the tour!)

D'accord - que le spectacle commence ce vendredi! BISES, Anita

P.S. wouldn't it be awesome if you met us in Paris next year? Think about it.
