Do minerals have feelings? An odd question indeed – but topaz seems like a very shy mineral to me. Its structure is quite pleasant but it seems at the same time quiet, discrete, and shy compared to the crystals arrangements I visited previously in this project. Kandinsky was the first artists I know who worked extensively on points, lines, angles and how they determine emotions. I’ll have to re-read the master.
Study of Nature and mineralogy is inspiring in more ways than one!
