travelinginformant "Far away in the land where the sun will never rise. Far away in the place with marmalade skies. Far away in the land where the sun will hide its eyes. Far away in the place with marmalade skies. All alone she moves; Into a broken paradise surrounded by the colored lights. On and on she moves. Into a paradise without day and without night. Carry on deeper into the rabbit hole. Carry on until you reach the hallway made of gold ." -Graham Candy

lady_naturalist Meet "Big Red"! This is the largest Red sea urchin (7" in diameter!) you'll find in museum collections worldwide, and it's right here @nhmla. This individual is approximately 200 years old!

robert_mahar Loved this little exhibition of Charles R. Knight's (1874-1953) paintings depicting extinct fossils as "dynamic living creatures." In the rotunda mezzanine at the Natural History Museum. #nhmla #losangeles #basilosaurus #kingofthelizards 3d

_alexispatterson It's been a long time since I have taken a selfie with these handsome sons of mine. Long overdue. We are missing Dad and trying to keep ourselves busy. #nhmla 3d

slothropologist Happy Memorial day! To all the men and women who have, and continue to, serve in the country's armed forces, Thank You.

If you're celebrating this holiday with fireworks you might have come across today's #mineralmonday spotlight specimen.
Celestine is the most common #mineral containing the element strontium sulfate, which is converted into the nitrate that's used in pyrotechnics.

Beyond its common use in #fireworks and in various metal alloys, this mineral is also known for its beautiful pale blue hue. In fact, its name, #Celestine, derives from the Latin term caelestis; alluding to it typical 'celestial' sky-blue color.
However, when pure, this mineral is actually colorless.

This pale #blue #crystal specimen, shown in the image above, comes from #Madagascar and you can see it in person at the entrance of #NHMLA's #gems and #minerals hall.
