And sometimes I just like to get retro SF.
The crystals are called “chrysolite opal”. To me, they looked like a piece of seaglass I found long, long ago. Ended up with those next to some bronze bugles, and the bunnies said “It’s the colors of the Nautilus!”
So I added some various blues and blue-greens, as if peering through the columns of seawater as the valiant submarine descends. And a little bit of golden rose for sand. I think it looks pretty cool.
If anyone wants to grab a shiny, there’s a link there and in my home page. 🙂
