Ancient Mineral, Art or Book?

Geological Marvel, Art or Book? You Be The Judge!

San Fran based artist Alexis Arnold has managed to reimagine National Geographic magazines with the use of Borax crystals for a strange geological marvel of colourful striations. Glittering crystals are alive and growing on the gradients of colour, turning them from mere functional books to something akin to living art and also uncannily like a rock formation. Quite a strange effect but totally bewitching!
