new acquisition

I picked up some great stuff at a mineral show this weekend, including this gorgeous chunk of fluorite. Lately, I've been letting myself choose some larger pieces for my collection, rather than only focusing on specimens to use as painting subjects. One of these days I'll have to do a post about my whole collection. It's getting pretty big!


  1. i love fluorite! the colours are always so otherworldly. that piece looks fantastic, too! i can't wait to see your collection. :)

  2. I NEED see your collection! :D I love minerals, greetings from Chile!

  3. Lovely choice. I wonder if keeping your original mineral specimen makes selling your paintings easier. I have so much trouble parting with rocks I've collected and my paintings for that matter.
