The Andara family

Here are the four Andara crystals together. I've included photos of the little plate that holds them so you can see its design. The crystals do pick up bits of shape and color from the plate. The photos are in order chronologically, from the first day they arrived until today. I hope you enjoy!

The Andara pair

As the smaller crystals go together as a pair, I thought it would be fun to photograph them together in different locations and qualities of light. These two are like chameleons, as you can see. What a delight!

Red Andara

This beautiful red Andara is the latest addition to my crystal family. Its color is rich and intense. It's more opaque than the others and less variable in color. On one side its outward shape reminds me of hills or mountains.

Clear-pink Andara

I call this rectangular, slender crystal "clear-pink," but like its partner it changes color easily.  I look at the photos and think, "Where did that color come from?" Sometimes it looks exactly the same color as the clear-blue one. Sometimes it looks bluer. In daylight it can appear violet . Under lamplight it turns pink. Viewed at eye-level in front of the red Andara, it turns red.

Clear-blue Andara

This Andara is smaller. At first glance it looks plain, at least compared to its bluegreen cousin. But what's remarkable is how it changes color depending upon the light and its surroundings.

Bluegreen Andara

This past December I became the happy guardian of several gorgeous Andara crystals from Hawaii. Since then I have been working to capture their shapeshifting beauty in photos.
