The secret of attraction is to love yourself. Attractive people judge neither themselves nor others. They are open to gestures of love. They think about love, and express their love in every action.
Agardite and conichalcite
Micromounting is the collection of photogenic minerals that can only be seen under the microscope. We did an article promoting the advantages of such a collection in terms of storage, cost and transport. They often display perfection of colour and crystal habit unthinkable in macro scale crystals at anything less than thousands of dollars. Great specimens can be found for yourself in abandoned mines.
Unlike the specimen in the post linked above, which evokes visions of fire, the wonder in this photo evokes a marine scene, with sea urchins that formed in the oxidised zone of a rare earth bearing oxidised zone of a copper ore deposit. Yellow green crystals of the rare earth hydrated arsenate mineral agardite have formed on top of tufts of bright blue needles of the calcium copper arsenate mineral conichalcite. The specimen comes from the Imperial Mine in Nevada and the field of view is 4.5mm.
The Bhaja Caves of Maharashtra, India.
Bhaja contains about 29 rock-cut caves, which date back to the 2nd century BCE, and is described by the Archaeological Survey of India to be “one of the important Buddhist centres of Hinayana faith in Maharashtra.”
A prominent features of Bhaja is Cave 12, a chaitya-griha, pictured in the final photo, which is considered one of the earliest of its kind. The stupa at the back of the large apsidal hall was used for worship. Cave 20 contains a group of stupas, which were built in memory of deceased monks, and probably once contained their relics.
Cave 18 was a monastery, and its verandah contains two famous sculpted reliefs. One of these (pictured in the 2nd photo) is located to the left of the door. This artwork depicts a person riding an elephant (thought by some to be Indra) who carries an ankusa (elephant goad), with attendants aside the figure, carrying a banner. The second relief shows a royal personage aside two women. The royal figure (who some identify as Sun god Surya), rides a chariot driven by four horses, and appears to be trampling a demon-like figure.
