08-30. Kornerupine #4.

Pink Kornerupine from Lanark Ontario, Canada.

Kornerupines usually comes in transparent blue or greenish color. I’ve seen some take on a purplish tone. This one may have taken on the color of the pink marble it was found buried in. Another great interplay of geometry and Nature. While we can rely on mathematics and geometry to identify any given mineral, color depends on many different parameters that make a definitive descriptive tentative at best.

When you join mathematics and art – you often get poetry. Well worth it all the same!
