Orthoclase w/ Mica schist

Orthoclase w/ Mica schist
Positive attributes for use in home décor, plus some fun factoids: • With its chiseled planes and architectural elements, this mineral specimen would easily add a bit of interest on a coffee table or sofa back table, topping a stack of books on a shelf, or grouped in between your favorite plants and ceramic pottery. • Orthoclase, a common raw material in glass, ceramics and porcelain, has an interesting textural quality and neutral coloring that lends itself to pretty much any décor. • This particular specimen has delicate Mica Schist flakes in pastel greens & pinks, which bring to mind pistachio pieces in a wedge of divinity candy. • The subtle undertones and texture changes, from plane to plane, combined with the random clusters of shimmering silver and green that are present give this mineral a bit more of a modern décor feel.

About the Artist, Mother Nature
Mother NatureMother Nature began her esteemed art career billions of years ago. She designs her art using special effects of time, heat and pressure….. Volcanic eruptions, mountains built from continents smashing into one another and even the slow layering of sand, silt, sea plants and animals creating new stone at the ocean’s floor. Some of her favorite creations are life turned to fossils, mineral crystals crafted into geodes, gemstones and an exquisite marble bearing the colors of a peacock! · Where there was once sea, she built land all while turning sea forms into fossils….. Caught in time are fish swimming among ferns….. where they once trolled the lake shores now they are forever etched in stone... · Her works include mineral crystals and gems born from the heat and pressure of volcanic eruptions. · In an instant of the geological clock, she showers the earth with meteorites condensed from the heavens. Mother Nature's art forms are numerous and wonderful to behold. Touchstone Gallery brings you a wide variety of her very best creations gathered from around the world.
