Hello guys, today I have something unique to share with you, namely a set of 6 free scolecite textures. A scolecite is a mineral found in only few places around the world, one of them being Berufjordur in East Iceland. The mineral commonly occurs as sprays of thin prismatic needles, frequently flattened on one side. It also occurs as radiating groups and fibrous masses.
Scolecite is usually colorless or white, but can also be pink, salmon, red or green. The one I photographed was mostly colorless thus the shade of blue or purple was added in post-processing. These textures have a lot of depth as I used my 100mm macro lens to get in really close to photograph the stones.
As you can see the mineral is a bit dirty with moss and other plant life growing on it. I guess that’s what happens when the stones are left outside all year around. It gives them a grunge and worn look that is a bit different and might have some application in design. At least you can add them to your arsenal for future use.
