Amethyst Stalactite 

High Atlas Mountains, Morocco

One of my favorite Amethyst formations. These formations are rare and can be pretty expensive depending on quality. I own a small specimen and it is well worth the price.

Here’s a little triptych (or quadtrych?) I did for concepts class. We had to pick something in the Royal Ontario Museum to create a promotional piece for. So I chose opal and holy moly, did I not realize how many different types of opals there are.

Each panel is referencing a different creation myth for opal:

The first panel refers to Ancient Arabic myths that say opals are created from lightening that hits the earth.

The second is from Ancient Greek myths that say Zeus, after defeating the Titans, shed happy tears that turned into Opals.

The third (and hardest to find) is a myth from Ancient India of a beautiful woman who was being pursued by the gods and one of the older gods who felt sorry for her turned her into mist. Each of the three gods chasing her felt bad and gave her a bit of their colours, turning her into an opal statue.

And the last panel is from Indigenous tribes in Australia who believe that when their creator came down to earth to spread their message, every step they took turned to opal.
