Mesolite Crystals on Basalt [Museum Week]
Amongst the collections of the Hunterian Museum at Glasgow University, next to the dinosaur bones, fossils, buddha statues and egyptian artefacts, lies a collection of geological wonders and other specimens, such as this piece of mesolite with a “radiating spray of terminated crystals” on basalt, all the way from Bombay, India.
More information on the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery can be found at http://www.hunterian.gla.ac.uk/, as well as its supplementary Facebook Page, Flickr Group, and on Twitter.
