Blue rocks fascinate me.  It seems like such a non-rock color to me.  I fell in love with the blue mineral in quartz matrix which is  called Kyanite the first time I saw it many years ago.  In fact, it starting me on a small collection of blue minerals back when I was a collector. Although some people do make jewelry with Kyanite, it typically is not considered a gemstone.  It has some industrial use… and of course is of value to collectors.

The background rock is a geode. This photo was taken surreptitiously, thus I thought it was lucky to catch the same colors in a different type of rock right there in the background.

  1. I like the way you captured the geode behind the foreground rocks. I like rocks, too, and was able to get our oldest son into collecting various samples and fossils. He turned out to be a civil engineer!

  2. I love the textures you captured along w/ those subtle blues…I love rocks as well, I don’t have a blue rock though!
