This is a brilliantly beautiful scarf that comes to life in silk with all its rich colours and intricate details shown to their very best.
Such richness deserves special occasions, but others may well say "no wear it when and where you like", and who are we to disagree?
Just as Richard created the world’s finest collection of scanned mineral images, he has over the last 4 years created the world’s finest collection of microscope mineral images produced with an artistic rather than a scientific purpose.
As his microscope delivers a magnification upto 200 times actual size, it means we needed a mineral sample less than 1 millimetre wide to create this scarf.
That also means that human eyes have never seen this image before now, despite the agate itself being millions of years old.
