  1. Delighted my dear friend and colleague.
    I am also a research scientist in physical and human geography. I love the geological elements that I look with 4 eyes (2 scientists and 2 artists) 😉 😉

  2. Wow, what a wonderful job. You are able to witness some beautiful formations of earth, how cool is that!

  3. I am a research scientist geographer, I love rocks, fossils, minerals, and geological forms of the earth. I really like my little collection in my office.
    happy to give you the pleasure of these rocks.

  4. How marvelous! Opal is so vibrant and colourful. It flashes it’s beauty, sometimes eloquently sometimes deliberately. Love these, thank you.
