This is a real shooting star! It is only a couple of hundred light years distant. Mira is moving very fast relative to everything near it, likely because it was ejected from a star cluster.

SEM of fat cells (adipocytes, round) surrounded by fine strands of supportive connective tissue. Adipocytes are among the largest cells in the human body, each cell being 100 to 120 microns in diameter. Almost the entire volume of each fat cell consists of a single lipid (fat or oil) droplet. Adipose tissue forms an insulating layer under the skin, storing energy in the form of fat, which is obtained from food. Magnification: x300 when printed.

    While this does look very striking ...This is NOT Amethyst or any other crystal. It may be considered art perhaps, but definitely not an actual crystal. Purple Quartz like all minerals crystallize according to very exact and predictable angles and forms and this example violates them all. I keep seeing this posted on pinterest as Amethyst and I just wanted to let people know it is mislabeled. :) I am not attacking any individual or anything.
