Monday Geology Picture: Glass House Mountains, Australia

I have been terribly neglecting my blog this year. However, I have a good excuse: over the past few months I have accepted a new job working as a geologist for Anglo American… and  I have moved my family to beautiful Brisbane, Australia. On top of that, I am mother to a young son (18 months old now) and I’m also studying part-time… so, I have my hands very full! …

Monday Geology Picture: A Geologist’s Bookshelf

As a geologist, I have quite a few reference books, including some textbooks that I consult fairly regularly. Today I’m sharing a picture showing a portion of my reference bookshelf in my office. You can see here that I have quite a few geochemistry books — actually, these are just some of the ones I have. What does your geologic reference bookshelf look like? Feel free to share a picture.

Monday Geology Picture: Kangaroo Point Cliffs, Brisbane, Australia

Happy New Year! I’m going to try to keep up with my “Monday Geology Picture” posts in 2019. I did okay with these in 2018, although I missed some weeks here and there when I was very busy with work or family life. To start off a new year of pictures, here is a picture that I took during a recent visit to Brisbane, Australia. This picture shows a place …

Monday Geology Picture: Decorating with Rocks

This week I’m sharing another picture that I took during a recent visit to Botswana. I saw this garden decoration at a hotel. What a great way to decorate with rocks! I might have to put up something similar in my garden one day.  What rock decorations do you have in your garden?

Monday Geology Picture: Botswana Landscape

This week I’m sharing another picture from my recent travels in Botswana. Here’s a lovely landscape view, taken along the road between Gaborone and Jwaneng. There are some beautiful red-colored sedimentary rocks in background. These rocks have weathered to produce the reddish colored soil in the foreground.

Monday Geology Picture: Tropic of Capricorn

Check out this article for some more information. Here are a couple pictures of the informational signs associated with the statue:   If you ever find yourself in Botswana, please visit the statue! I enjoyed the stop …

Monday Geology Picture: Tantalite Specimen

For this week’s picture, here’s an image of a tantalite mineral specimen. I snapped this picture when I visiting a university last week — the mineral stood out for me amidst a collection of numerous rocks and minerals that were on display for geology students. I’d seen tantalite before — I’ve observed it under the microscope in heavy mineral concentrates. However, I’d never seen such a big example of it …

Monday Geology Picture: More Airport Geology

I’m traveling again this week (4 weeks of travel in a row!), so today I’m sharing another picture of some “airport geology”. Specifically, this is a picture of some gorgeous decorative stones adorning a column at O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. I took this picture yesterday when I was passing through the airport.  I particularly like the way the block of rock was split and the set …

Monday Geology Picture: Airport Geology

I travel a lot for my job, and I often find myself traveling through O.R. Tambo International Airport in Johannesburg, South Africa. The terminal buildings contain some lovely decorative stones, which I often admire as I’m navigating my way through the airport. For example, while I was waiting for my luggage today I admired, as I have before, some of the lovely decorative stones that make up part of the …

Monday Geology Picture: Geology Building at the University of Queensland

Earlier this year I visited The University of Queensland in Australia. For this week’s picture, I’m sharing an image of the lovely geology building at the university. The building is made out of gorgeous sandstone blocks… and there’s a dinosaur mural! And, lower down, check out the stones with the fossil carvings! What a great building. I think this is one of the most lovely and delightful geology buildings that …
