There is nothing quite like walking barefoot along a sandy beach, but have you ever stopped and really thought about the sand? Every grain of sand is a snapshot in time: Each grain originated somewhere and is headed somewhere else. Each little spec has its own original story, resulting in a massive, beautiful collage that we can’t see on our own. You know how they say every snowflake is different? Well, they are but they’re only slightly different. Sand grains are totally different.
To the naked eye, the tiny particles that make up sand are less than inspiring. Under the microscope, however, it’s a completely different story. Looking at sand under extreme magnification, you will see a new world of brilliant colors, organic shapes, and the stunning patterns of nature.
