Last weekend, Andrew and I took our first trip to the Houston Museum of Natural Science. Despite the crazy parking and long lines typical of a holiday, we really enjoyed it. My favorite exhibits included the Morian Hall of Paleontology (of course) and the Cullen Hall of Gems and Minerals. Above, you'll see what I think is fluorite in a lovely shade of peach.*
*I was so distracted by the colors, shapes, and exquisitely-lit display cases that I forgot to note what everything was. Don't worry, I corrected this grievance by the time we got to the slices of petrified wood. Aaand...ok...before you say, "that sounds incredibly dull," let me assure you it is not.
More photos of gems, minerals, and petrified wood to come! Nerds: get excited.

WHAT ARE THESE COLOR CODES? The “hex codes” above are provided as a courtesy for those customizing website colors or looking for general color inspiration. They are not based on paint or Pantone chips. Remember that ink on paper will never look the same as light on a screen. If you like a combination you see, we recommend saving the image and heading to your local hardware store to find paint chips that match. Digital colors will change depending on your phone/tablet/computer screen, so be sure to color match with real swatches. Also, I make up all the color names.
