Mineral Spot: Petrified Mouse...

I love it when nature plays a trick on you (well in my eyes anyway). I have a few mineral specimens in my collection that seem to be 'something else'.

Consider the petrified mouse head pictured left!

Actually, its a specimen of malachite, a copper carbonate mineral, from Beresovsk in Russia. But it still looks like a mouse head to me!

Steve, you've been "tagged," which means you now have to tell us 7 things about yourself and "tag" 7 other artist/bloggers on your site :) This has been going on for a while and you can check my blog to see who I tagged (you have to pick 7 others).
