>> Fascinating: Sand Under The Microscope


Sand under microscope, 250x magnification

Picture This: A beach + sunshine & the ocean = perfect vacation! Today we want to take a closer look at the sand, which we normally just enjoy walking on barefoot! It is interesting to see, it contains many colorful pieces that look very different from each other. Sand, is such a complex topic - there are even a few books about it! :)


Like this one: A Grain Of Sand - Nature's Secret Wonder by Dr. Gary Greenberg, who took these photos. A quote from his website describes it perfectly: 'Each grain of sand represents a moment captured in time.  It is somewhere on its path from its creation to erosion and recycling back into the earth'.
