in love with geology and mineralogy, therefore that's mostly what you'll find here. I love me some rocks! You'll also find pictures from my travels, lots of Wulfenite, my cat, things that make me laugh, thoughts/rants, and the like.

Finally getting caught up on some photos today. These are from a few weeks back. 19 mm rough faced ocean jasper. There’s a sparkly layer of clear quartz crystals that make up the face. Orbiticular side on the back for comparison.

Cache of severed hands found in Egypt, 15th Dynasty,  Second Intermediate Period (Hyksos Period), Circa 1600 BC
The discovery of 16 buried hands found at the ancient site of Avaris in Egypt provides the first and only physical evidence of a gruesome practice used by ancient warriors where the severed hands of enemy combatants were exchanged for gold. The hands were found in four pits dating back 3,600 years.
All of the hands are right hands and they are from a period when the Hyksos, from northern Canaan, established the center of their kingdom at ancient Avaris, near modern Tell el-Daba. The Hyksos King Khyan was thought to be living at the Palace at the time the hands were buried.

Most people think happiness is about gaining something, but it’s not. It’s all about getting rid of the darkness you accumulate.

Fascinating geology in the folded Paleozoic limestone strata at Ptarmigan Cirque in Kananaskis Country, Alberta, Canada. I took this photo last summer while hiking in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. You are pretty much at the top of the mountain at this point. Lots of ancient corals and other fossils in these rocks.
