We got to take a little tour of the meteorite collection at the museum today! It was one of those existential moments where I realized I was surrounded by objects older than the earth, some even older than the solar system. And I got to TOUCH one of them (that baby is 4 billion years old right there). It was really neat getting the deets on pre-solar diamonds and what makes a differentiated meteor, etc. Plus I got to hold a Mars rock (in a plastic case, granted) that was worth $187,000! It would have fit easily in the palm of my hand, so definitely not that large.
Diamonds are great, but space rocks are literally forever.

Finished my first crinoid! I don’t think there’s going to be text or anything on the actual website these are all going on (they’ll also probably be all separate too I would imaging) but I felt like putting them all together for easy viewing. :)

Oh man the coloring part of this project is going to kill me… Took three work days to get this done (also I already know I have a few anatomical fixes to make, so there’s that too…). O_O
