This last weekend, I went to the 21th anual fair of minerals, gemstones and fossils. It takes place in my city Porto and although I don't use gemstones in my jewellery work (at least, not yet), I'm always amazed with the textures and colors that you can find in nature. Quite dramatic, huh?
(I bought two penguins and a rhino, as the ones you can see in the last picture. Animals, just can't resist them.)
