1″ x 1.5″, glass

I sat with a friend last night and talked about the sciences. She’s a chemistry girl, and I’ve always loved biology. She explained that once you can place something on the periodic table, you know how it’ll act. I think I love biology for exactly the opposite reason. Even after learning the parts of a cell structure the fact that it all works just seems like magic, and once you get into larger structures like the brain there’s still so much that we don’t understand. While I certainly want science to move forward, there’s something beautiful about all of the questions left to answer. Look carefully at the patterns in and on the pieces of glass in this pendant and you’ll see what look like cell structures, all created by minerals in the glass.
