This mineral composition is inspired by some chromolithographs from Meyers Konversations-Lexicon encyclopedia (1893), as seen in the Romance of Books account (a real goldmine of vintage science illustrations – seriously, follow them!)


You may have noticed that I usually prefer to draw living things – maybe that’s my biologist training showing – but in these troubling times, I found copying rocks and minerals very comforting.

Not that I believe minerals have any special powers. I just love the idea of rocks slowly morphing into gems deep within the Earth, untouched by human troubles. They existed for millions of years, long before life even appeared and they will keep going long after we are gone.

Hope you like them!
