Flowing Lava, Hawaii. "Lava is a liquid at temperatures from 1,292 to 2,192 °F. Up to 100,000 times as viscous ("thick" or amount of "internal friction") as water, lava can flow great distances before cooling and solidifying because of its thixotropic ("having a viscosity that decreases when a stress is applied, as when stirred ~ like paint") and shear thinning properties."

Agate ~ The quartz crystals in agate are said to be cryptocrystalline - which means they have a crystalline structure so fine that no distinct particles are recognizeable by the naked eye, nor under the microscope, with regular magnification.

Tulip 'Ice Cream' - Bulb Tulipa New! This magnificent tulip definitely lives up to its name, as when in bloom it looks just like a delicious ice-cream - it looks almost good enough to eat. The outer deep-pink petals open to reveal the inner soft-white petals that are formed closely together. The large peony shaped flowers are also attractive as cut flowers.
Ice Cream Tulips...wow so different!
