Olivine is usually green. It sometimes comes from space in a very colourful form in tiny spheres called chondrules in meteorites.

These are the nets to make two crystals of Hotaru Ishi. Completed solids me be viewed in Galleries → Papercraft → Crystals → Hotaru Ishi. More information about the mineral may be found here; photos of the actual crystals are here.
Despite the delicious name, this mineral is not edible. It has the features of watermelons if you except the seeds, sweetness and softness. It is a variety of tourmaline. Images of the actual mineral can be seen here—a page that sells jewellery.
More of my images, including the nets, can be viewed in “Galleries” → “Papercraft” → “Crystals” → “Watermelon Stone”.
Next week I hope to introduce a mineral that allegedly glows in the dark.
Halite or rock salt is an edible mineral.
Just click on the images to get a closer look.
“You are the salt of the earth,” taught the Lord Jesus, referring to salt’s preserving function.
“Let your conversation be seasoned with salt,” advised the apostle Paul.
Though these two gems of wisdom have been around for two millennia, we need them just as much now as we move deeper into the third millennium.
The colours are due partly to contaminations from other minerals. Image and info can be found here.
Halite is the first of six crystals that I am adding to the site. The complete set will eventually be proudly displayed in “Galleries” → “Papercraft” → “Crystals”. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I have enjoyed making them.
These are the first three of a new series called “Crystals”. うえの三つの石は「Ｃｒｙｓｔａｌｓ」「結晶」という新しいシリーズの最初のメンバーです。
At the back on the right is Fluorite, Fluorspar or Hotaru Ishi. The last name is Japanese and suggests a luminescent quality reminiscent of lightning bugs or glow worms. More info at fluorite or hotaru ishi. 後ろと右には蛍石です。もっと知りたかったらここをクリックして下さい。
In the coming weeks I hope to introduce the crystals one by one, starting with Halite next week. I hope you enjoy. 次の数週間の間、結晶をいっこうづつ紹介するつもりです。お楽しみ！

I apologise for my long silence—due to pressure of work.
It isn’t a moss but it is Irish. That makes it one better than the Guinea pig, which is neither Guinean nor a pig.
Here is the complete weed on a sea background made of the soft wrappings used by florists to wrap bouquets.

The meaning of the 25th ‘door’ is Mary and Joseph’s journey to and arrival at Bethlehem. There the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world, the Saviour Jesus was born.
