Have you seen these beauties floating around the web lately? THEY'RE OIL PAINTINGS. Seriously... can you believe it? Since 2009, artist Carly Waito has been photographing the microscopic details of minerals and turning them into beautiful, intricate oil paintings.
Seriously, the detail and realism of her work is incredible. When I first saw them, I honestly thought they were photographs. I still can't get over it! I want to hang these on my wall, framed in black, in a series of three: tourmaline, smoky quartz, and barite.
Come on, guys. You know I love me some geodes.
