Reflections on Refractionss

Crystals are fun. We have many forms scattered around the house from geodes to local quartz. In this season, most of the crystals I deal with are made of H2O instead of SiO2 and the glass hanging above is not technically a crystal in all likelihood although it is called that.

This ‘crystal’ hanging in the windows makes moving rainbows of the morning light to great amusement of little folk of multiple species. In the planes of this glass ‘gem’ I see the hills across our valley, the blue sky behind.

    I have a string of crystals hanging in the back outside my sliding glass doors. They fill the room with rainbows that dance and move in the breezes. There are a couple of months where the sun is directly overhead here and they don't reflect. It's the only way to know the seasons, by where the sun is.
    We had a cold streak, it got to 46 last nite. This is the only time to be here. Otherwise I love Vermont.

    Beautiful crystal, Walter!!!! Poetry in motion!! I love to collect rocks, but I'm out of room for any more in the house. Still have lots of room outside, though, lol. I'm awful at the beach, as I'm so busy looking for rocks, I sometimes miss neat birds!!!

    I love glass. I have a collection of glass "diamonds" on my desk. I should do a post about them (since I haven't been to the woods to get any photos).

    You got me! My first thoughts when I glanced at title was… whose "jewels"? Castrations on farm? I hope not significant other's!

    Ah, it is only those clear glass crystals hanging in windows belonging to FAMILY!
