Cherokee rare corn farmer Carl Barnes spent years isolating Native American corn varieties to save a lost heritage, ultimately preserving his glass gem corn seed.

more beautiful glass gem corn. why are there so many vibrant colors in a single ear of corn? You don’t usually see flowers of different colors on a single tree. Each kernel is actually a different corn plant (or the seed of one) with a unique mix of genes inherited from its parents. #garden #genetics #corn
The nearly translucent Glass Gem Corn looks more like a work of art than a vegetable. And it's clear why: The translucent rainbow kernels look more like Swarovski crystals than food. But how did these brilliant kernels come to be? The story begins decades ago with Carl Barnes, a part-Cherokee farmer and breeder in Oklahoma who started crossing different Native American corns for beauty. He chose vibrant, translucent colors and eventually ended up with Glass Gem Corn.
Glass gem corn. Beautiful! #GlassGem

rhamphotheca: Fossil Crinoids (Uintacrinus socialis), Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, Washington, D.C. Because many crinoids resemble flowers, with their cluster of waving arms atop a long stem, they are sometimes called sea lilies. But crinoids are not plants. Like their relatives—starfishes, sea urchins, sea cucumbers, and brittle stars—crinoids are echinoderms, animals with rough, spiny surfaces and a special kind of radial symmetry based on five or multiples of five. Crinoids have lived in the world’s oceans since at least the beginning of the Ordovician Period, roughly 490 million years ago. They may be even older. Some paleontologists think that a fossil called Echmatocrinus, from the famous Burgess Shale fossil site in British Columbia, may be the earliest crinoid. The Burgess Shale fossils date to the Middle Cambrian, well over 500 million years ago. Either way, crinoids have had a long and successful history on earth… (find out more: GeoKansas)

The name "ammonite", from which the scientific term is derived, was inspired by the spiral shape of their fossilized shells, which somewhat resemble tightly coiled rams' horns./ According to the Book of Mormon, the Ammonites (/ˈæm.ə.naɪts/) were a group of Lamanites who had been converted to the Christian religion of the Nephites by the missionary efforts.......this must be their skeletal remains!
Spiral like shapes are common for sea shells. looks very 90's with the style and colours. Vintage.

Deepa Panchamia - beautiful texture: looks like silk pockets
Deepa Panchamia, from the book TEXTILES NOW, by Drusilla Cole: "Pockets of the palest blue silk organza form the rippling surface of this textile. The artist has intentionally used limited range of subtle colours to create shadows on the surface and enhance the contours of the structure."
UN BELLISSIMO BOARD DI PINTEREST: TEXTILES, TEXTURES AND FABRIC MANIPULATION
Commissioned Window Panel made entirely from 1445 tiny pocketed constructions. In this linear piece, Deepa Panchamia creates an ethereal flowing surface of delicate hand crafted pockets, whose forms appear to ripple and pulsate.

Peeling Wall Detail of the Garrett-Dunn House in Philadelphia at the start of its reconstruction. The house is located in the Mt. Airy neighborhood in northwest Philly and was recently listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Architect Thomas U. Walter designed the second of three phases of the house in 1835. (Only one other residence is know to have been designed by Walter, who is known as the architect of the dome on the U.S. Capitol building, of the House and Senate wings of the Capitol building and of Girard College.) Work has been started to convert the house to luxury condominiums.
