Landscapes minerals painted by Nature
Moss agate looks like painting, true, but the artist is Nature. Multi-colored landscape stones fully justify their name, using imagination you can distinguish the sea, meadows, mountains, sky, clouds, trees, ghostly green and brown, as in the paintings of Pierre Bonnard. The ability of rocks and minerals to form patterns that resemble paintings, graphics and characters is well known to fans of stones. Pattern emerges clearly if the stone is cut and polished. Here are images of Agate and some Onyx, found in different corners of our Earth – Baikal region, the Alps, Alaska, Kamchatka, Mongolia, and even Moscow region. The unusual agates are stored in collections, the same as paintings, and the same as paintings they have names – “Bay of Providence”, “Sannikov Land”, “Madagascar”.
