07-01. Natrolite #7.

Last of the natrolites. Nice way to start the month of July, its cell structure is turning into a country flower bunch!

I was intrigued by the strong warm color pattern it inspired me – then I read the source file credits: a little mineral from the Northern countryside of Russia. The matryoshka girls must be smiling at me!

Interestingly, I just checked on what “Matryoshka” means and found this: Matryoshkas are used metaphorically as a design paradigm known as the “matryoshka principle”. It denotes a recognizable relationship of “object-within-similar-object” that appears in the design of many natural or crafted objects. It sure makes sense for today’s mineral!

It sure makes sense for today’s mineral!

From a resource by Seryotkin, Bakakin, Fursenko, Belitsky, Joswig, and Radaelli: neutron diffraction study of a natrolite from the Khibiny massif, Kola Peninsula, Russia.
