We were making some Elite Shungite pendant jewellery in our workshop, when, as it tends to do, the piece of Elite shattered into about 6 pieces.
It is very brittle and it is not uncommon for this to happen when we are creating.
As I was putting the pieces to one side, muttering to myself, I noticed some amazing colours along the fracture lines. I pulled out my not very trusty microscope and got some images before the microscope decided it didn't want to work for me any longer.
Anyway, enjoy the up close and personal view of the Elite Shungite.
