I'm an amateur shutterbug, currently based in Vancouver. I travel for both work and fun and my camera always comes with me. I have had the opportunity to both live and work north of 60, and the Arctic holds a special place in my heart.

    I'm Gone for Summer! says:

    "Vesuvianite, also known as idocrase is a green, brown, yellow, or blue silicate mineral. Vesuvianite occurs as tetragonal crystals in skarn deposits and limestones that have been subjected to contact metamorphism. It was first discovered within included blocks or adjacent to lavas on Mount Vesuvius, hence its name.

    A bluish variety known as cyprine has been reported from Franklin, New Jersey and other locations; the blue is due to impurities of copper. Californite is a name sometimes used for jade-like vesuvianite, also known as California-, American- or Vesuvianite-jade. Xanthite is a manganese rich variety. Wiluite is an optically positive variety from Wilui, Siberia. Idocrase is an older synonym sometimes used for gemstone-quality vesuvianite.

    Like this description from Wikipedia this incarnation of this name is a true gem in photography. Imagination and sensitivity in her work makes each posting a true work of art."
