Mineral inspiration

As I have noted before I love going to the ROM and looking for inspiration. This piece is inspired by a mineral sample in the Teck Gallery.
Azurite Box
Azurite samples as the ROM
Azurite is a deep blue copper mineral. I was attracted to the middle sample with its contrasting coppery orange.


  1. You didn't need to say whih sample my eye went straight to it! It's a lovely representation. I was visiting Toronto a few years ago and the friends we stayed with we're raving about the gem and mineral show that was on, but in the end we ran out of time to go. Someday I'll have to get back

  2. Next time you are in Toronto, I would highly recommend go to the ROM's Teck Gallery. There are also some amazing pieces of jewellry on display as well.
