The Secret Life Of Sand

Can you believe this is sand? I recently came across these beautiful photos by Dr. Gary Greenberg. He takes microscopic pictures of sand and other mundane objects - you can see more at his website

I became a glass artist as I just love using the materials and watching them transform when they are in the kiln. That something made from just sand can become so beautiful is one of the reasons I love using the medium. What I hadn't realised until I saw these pictures is how amazing sand is just by itself. A bit boring to the naked eye - but under a microscope, isn't it just beautiful?
