A petrified flower? Not so much. Although this is called a chrysanthemum stone, there’s no real plant matter involved. Well, not in the way you think, that is. During the Permian age (248 to 290 million years ago), a thick layer of mud containing all sorts of silt and organic marine material lay at the bottom of the ocean. Calcium carbonate and strontium sulphate precipitated within that mud and was compressed as more layers of muddy ooze piled on top. Over time, this sedimentary rock hardened, leaving these crystalline “flowers” trapped inside a dark rock, such as limestone or dolomite. Who knew something so beautiful could come from something so muddy? Photo cred: cobalt123 via Flickr: A petrified flower? Not so much.

••••••• love 40 degree Australia weather fml: Suzie uru Imagine Harry and Ginny a few months into their marriage and they're so happy and in love and then one day they go shopping for food and household items and Harry just casually grabs certain items before Ginny hisses at him to "Check the prices, Harry, God! That bed set is far too expensive, were not going to have anything left to get the food with! And Harry starts to laugh and say "We dont have to worry about and then he stops and he and Ginny look at each other. And Harry realizes that she's grown up having to measure out all her money and decide what she can and cannot have for a certain week or month or year. And Ginny realizes that she is actually no longer obligated to worry about money ever again. Imagine Harry and Ginny eating dinner together and Ginny's telling him about certain meals her mum made and teasing him about how he wolfs everything down and "Honestly Harry, youre worse than Ron!" and Harry retorts laughingly well old habits die hard, Ihad to fight Dudley for meals all the time, you at least knew you were going to eat every day! And Ginny's grin starts to fade and she asks "You...you didntget to eat everyday? And Harry realizes what he said and he changes the subject quickly and Ginny looks at the plates in front of him and resists the urge to pile on some more potatoes. And the next day Vernon Dursley's car is egged Imagine Harry and Ginny both suffering from night terrors and PTSD and agreeing that maybe going to that therapist Hermione recommended isn't such a bad idea, and that's how Thursday night became Therapy Night when they go out to dinner or to the pub after each session and agree that they need to talk to some Healers about introducing these sessions since therapy is still widely seen as muggle nonsense in the wizarding world. And Ginny murmurs over her fire whiskey that sometimes she can still hear Tom Riddle murmuring in her ear, and Harry whispers that he dreams about running after his mother and father and Sirius and Remus as they disappear behind the Veil in the Department of Mysteries and he doesn't know if he wakes from terror or regret about not making it through. And thev ao back home and hold each other closer that night and both wake ••••••• love 40 degree Australia weather fml
