I Spy- Grains of Sand

Do you ever wonder what grains of sand really look like?  Well Professor Gary Greenberg from University College London did.  And the result is spectacular!  Very much how snowflakes are intricate lace like pieces of ice, sand looks like shells and pieces of crystal!  Below are his photos that were taken at a magnification over 250 times!  Amazing!  You can find more of his photos (not just of sand) at his website.
