Some gemstones (quartz) allow you to look through their first solid layer. The more I study the gemstones, the more I see how their patterns resemble landscapes. I see icy landscapes, sandy hills, and lakes. By looking through the foggy quartz, I think about how many unknown and unseen patterns are hidden inside the stones.
