  • The Green and Pink Tourmaline form naturally together to create the stone that is known appropriately as "Watermelon" tourmaline. Watermelon Tourmaline is a bit more difficult to find than other colors which makes them special. 
Like Green Tourmaline, Pink Tourmaline focuses most on the Heart Chakra, but Green Tourmaline connects to physical energies, whereas Pink is more about spiritual energies. Pink Tourmaline is known to promote peace and inspire love. Pink and Green Tourmalines are like feminine and masculine counterparts, making them a great team to work with during meditation or energy healing sessions.

All Tourmaline has the physical property of being pyroelectric, meaning that it can develop opposite charges at opposite ends of the crystal, when heated or cooled, creating a kind of static-electricity effect. Tourmalines are well-known in metaphysical circles as wonderful crystals for healing and protection. They are excellent for balancing the hemispheres of the brain, clearing away blockages, and transmuting negative energies. Tourmalines work well with all of the Chakras, and promote compassion, empathy, sympathy, and self-confidence. 
Like all Tourmalines, Watermelon Tourmaline is a metaphysically protective stone which is said to balance and harmonize the chakras. Consistent with it"s components, Watermelon Tourmaline works with the heart and higher heart chakras, cleansing and removing blockages, soothing and relieving stress, and offering enhanced physical healing. Watermelon Tourmaline is thought to help lessen depression and mend emotional wounds by allowing the one to see the meaning and purpose of certain events in life.

As a balancing stone, Watermelon Tourmaline functions as a combination of male and female energies, both Yin and Yang together in one crystal. It can help to inspire both creativity and practicality, and connects the Heart Chakra to both physical and spiritual vibrations. Watermelon Tourmaline aids in removing insecurities and calming overactive emotions. Watermelon Tourmaline crystal is also believed to help attract love and resolve issues in relationships, infusing them with joy and Divine Love.

  • Vivianite is a rare crystal that forms transparent - translucent, flattened plates which are often colorless but, when exposed to light, will change color to a deep blue, and sometimes deep purple to almost black. It is always a good idea to keep Vivianite in a dark cloth or in a dark space when not in use, in order to protect its color. It is also a very soft crystal, so it must be handled with care.

Vivianite encourages one who may be overly self-conscious to feel more comfortable in his/her own skin.
It can help you navigate difficult and seemingly impossible problems and deal with them in a more realistic way, thus enabling you to reach your goals.
Vivianite encourages you to live in the moment.

It is a crystal that is suited well for those who are caregivers, especially if they care for the disabled or elderly because Vivianite helps to find more peace and patience with their charges.
Vivianite increases intuition making it a good crystal to have near you for dream work or distance healing.

Use Vivianite with Fossils, Agates or Jaspers to enhance their effectiveness.
Physically, Vivianite eases problems of the eyes such as cataracts, conjunctivitis or degeneration of the iris; it helps the body to assimilate iron; strengthens bones; eases senility, and helps mobility.

Note: Handle with care and wash hands after use; it is not recommended to use Vivianite in elixirs.

  • 📣 Racconti di GEOLOGIA! 📣 "Rettifiche e rischio idrogeologico" 🏞️ Le rettifiche consistono nella costruzione di un nuovo letto per il fiume, letto rettilineo o quasi, in una zona in cui in genere il fiume percorre numerosi meandri. Tali opere riguardano la sistemazione in grande del corso d’acqua, cioè tendono a stabilire le condizioni vicine all’equilibrio del letto per quanto riguarda il trasporto dei materiali e un’ampiezza sufficiente per esso quando si presenti la massima portata di piena.

Il primo effetto di una rettifica è la riduzione del percorso dell’acqua con conseguente aumento della pendenza.
Si avrà così una maggiore velocità della corrente e uno scavo del letto nel tratto rettificato, che si estenderà anche a monte; mentre a valle della rettifica la minore velocità produrrà invece un deposito e in conseguenza si ridurrà la pendenza del tratto rettilineo.
La diminuzione di velocità si estenderà verso monte finché non si sia ristabilito l’equilibrio.

Le piene si propagheranno in ogni caso più rapidamente a valle sia in conseguenza del minor percorso che della maggiore velocità media lungo lo stesso.

Gli autori classici dell’idraulica sostengono in generale che le rettifiche sono scarsamente efficaci, ritenendo che il percorso dei fiumi sia, per sua natura, tortuoso sicché occorre una manutenzione molto onerosa per le rettifiche; essi affermano pure che le piene diventano pericolose per effetto del minor volume di invaso disponibile.

Quest’ultima osservazione vale se la rettifica avviene su un affluente perché nel corso rettificato, di fronte al minore volume di invaso, si ha una maggiore portata, perché aumenta la pendenza, invece nel ricevente si risentono soltanto i danni dovuti sia alla maggiore portata sia all’aumentata rapidità di propagazione delle piene che possono coincidere con quelle del corso principale o di altri affluenti.
Invece la rettifica effettuata alla foce del corso d’acqua non provoca questi danni e anzi può aversi un vantaggio di un rapido smaltimento delle piene.

Comunque anche per l’esecuzione delle rettifiche occorre una speciale prudenza e una valutazione accurata di tutte le conseguenze cui possono dare luogo.

  • Cut Rhodochrosite has a somewhat misleading look to it🤔
While it may seem like you're looking at an odd concentric crystal growth; in reality, these are really minerals that formed as stalactites! 
I guess you could say they got major drip💦

  • A beautiful chert (thin to medium bed) interbedded with siliceous shale (very thin bed) outcrop with a chevron minor fold and offset fault. This reflects the different deformation mechanisms reigning in the crust. The changeover from brittle at or near the surface to ductile deformation with increasing depth. Bypassing through the brittle–semi brittle transition the ductile response to deformation is starting to set in. This outcrop is containing a lot of Triassic radiolaria. But it was still debatable about the age, according to baby Ammonite? (maybe CP age) (Can ammonite live in deep water ?). About the limestone breccia near this outcrop, it can use to predict how lithological heterogeneities and amount of lithification influence the deformation mechanisms, hence the hydraulic properties of fault zones that crosscut sedimentary successions. ☺

  • I was recently lucky enough to visit my family (and amazing tour guides) out in the #PNW. While we were roaming around, I happened upon a tree that was laying on the shore of the beach. On it was stacked 2 smooth rocks. I couldn’t help myself and had to stack a third one on top of them. #beach #rocks #nature #photography #travel
