Sand fom Þorlákshöfn, Iceland, under the GIGAmacro lens

Posted by Callan Bentley

I think this one of the most fascinating batches of sand we’ve yet had the pleasure of macro-GigaPanning:


So much igneous goodness hidden in those grains, collected from a beach on the south of Iceland…

The image was made by Robin Rohrback-Schiavone (my student at NOVA) as part of the Mid-Atlantic Geo-Image Collection (M.A.G.I.C.). The sand sample was donated by my colleague Beth Doyle. Thanks to both of them!
