Photo Hunters- RARE
Today's Photohunters theme is RARE
Thanks to TNCHICK. Sorry you're under the weather and hope you are on the mend soon.
I have chosen two photos for the theme- one rare, the second rarer.
This first photo is of a black sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii, Punalu'u Beach.
Black sand is formed when hot molten lava shatters as it makes contact with the cold water of the ocean.
This second photo is even RARER. This is a shot of the Green Sand beach on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Green sand is also made from molten lava. However, it acquires it's green color from the mineral olivine that is present in the mix.
Don't ask for the moon
It's taken...behold a world...
In a grain of sand
