Love the picture, Elizabeth.

The closest I have seen to this is the gypsum crystals that sometimes formed in the salt pan near where I lived as a lad.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Ray!
I imagine the gypsum crystals would be just as beautiful!

What a great idea this is of yours, Elizabeth - and how different they all are
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Lisl! I saw them much like snowflakes, so unique!

I see a kind of rainbow - a fine piece of crystal. After having read the quotation I assume Frank will soon arrive at your home!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh thank you Philine... these ice crystals were just so pretty, and it seems everyone is seeing something different in them!
Actually, I'll be arriving in England in 22 days! Yippee! smile

I like the way it clings to whatever it is clinging to Elizabeth.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Me too! It was a dry flower stalk of some sort...
Wow a beaut of a close up
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you very much Martin!
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Oh yay! Thank you!
Love that blue topaz on the top.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: That is pretty isn't it!
This is the best one yet, Ell', lovely.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Really? Oh, thank you!!!!
What a precious tree! My favourite so far Elizabeth.

They look so crystalline.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Ice crystals... amazing how they were growing!
I like this one very much Elizabeth, there is an interesting streak of colour running through it, I wonder what that is.
Elizabeth Croston Buckalew: Thank you Brian! These were ice crystals growing on a dry flower stalk... so I believe what you're seeing is part of the dried stem.
