05-06. Dolomite #7.
From a Drits, McCarty, Sakharov and Milliken resource: dolomite from Lea County, New Mexico.
How strange it is – I spent 2 days trying to find a color scheme that could fit the design and/or make it more dynamic. This morning, I checked the origin of the mineral: Lea County New Mexico – a tiny piece of desert land and dust lost in the middle of the South East part of the State, just next to Texas.
Last January, Exxon just spent $ 5.6 billions on drilling rights in that County. Not a great cause to celebrate I guess – if you’re a mineral! No wonder I couldn’t find any cheerful color in this dolomite. The coincidence is so bizarre, I felt like a real photograph from the Albuquerque journal is the least I could do to go along with this post.
