I’m a romantic, and we romantics are more sensitive to the way people feel. We love more, and we hurt more. When we’re hurt, we hurt for a long time.

2022: The West MacDonnell Ranges, as photographed with new Mavic 2 Pro drone from Honeymoon Gap. Strike ridges of Heavitree Quartzite (~800Ma) delineate the east-west orientation of the range. They are overlain by the madly-folded formations of the Bitter Springs Group. The ranges were uplifted as part of the Alice Springs Orogeny (500Ma to 300Ma), which was unusual in that it occurred mid-continent as opposed to on a plate boundary.

My life is a struggle between my need for acceptance, my fear of rejection, and a desire to not care at all.

Within a diamond hauled from deep beneath Earth's surface, scientists have discovered the first example of a never-before-seen mineral.
Named davemaoite after prominent geophysicist Ho-kwang (Dave) Mao, the mineral is the first example of a high-pressure calcium silicate perovskite (CaSiO3) found on Earth. Another form of CaSiO3, known as wollastonite, is commonly found across the globe, but davemaoite has a crystalline structure that forms only under high pressure and high temperatures in Earth's mantle, the mainly solid layer of Earth trapped between the outer core and the crust.
Davemaoite has long been expected to be an abundant and geochemically important mineral in Earth's mantle. But scientists have never found any direct evidence of its existence because it breaks down into other minerals when it moves toward the surface and pressure decreases. However, analysis of a diamond from Botswana, which formed in the mantle around 410 miles (660 kilometers) below Earth's surface, has revealed a sample of intact davemaoite trapped inside. As a result, the International Mineralogical Association has now confirmed davemaoite as a new mineral.
