Christmas and Crystals

More photos HERE

I came across these photos of snow crystals by chance when searching for new jewelry. The cliche that certain things "...are like snow flakes; no two are alike" really had me excited. These specimens are some of my favorites. It is a wonder to think that snowflakes fall from the sky as microscopic masterpieces, all of which will never be repeated again. Did we start cutting out snowflakes made of paper only after the technology to photograph snow crystals was invented? I am not sure, but this bottle of malbec really wont allow me to do the research. For now, enjoy!
