Gems & Minerals as Art

A well cut gemstone or an unusual mineral specimen could be regarded as a work of art in itself.  However, these items have been the inspiration for many wonderful works of art in more traditional media.

Recently I came across a website which has just introduced a new section featuring a variety of art on the subject of minerals, gems and mining:

The Mineralogical Record – Museum of Art

Each artist has their own “gallery” and there are some fantastic images to browse through.

The images above are just a small sampling of what is on offer here – click to see larger versions.  From left to right, the artists are a) Susan Robinson, b) William Davidson White, c) John Sinkankas and d) Frederick Wilda so please see the relevant galleries for more of their work or just browse at random.
