14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Underworld - Iron, Calcite Inclusions in Quartz

I specialize in capturing images of inclusions in geological specimens. This is a single scene of a iron and calcite inclusions found in a quartz specimen. It is an image from the “Flaws” project that examines perceptions of beauty through flaws in geological world. I do not use computer generated objects, combine an image with unrelated images, or use lighting filters (colored, UV, polarizing etc.) in whole or part in this work.
