Sunday stamps #33

Last week I did not set a future theme for this week, so let's have it be anything you wish. As I have done before when the theme is open, I would like to share some mineral stamps.


From the left: Uranium ore, quartz, aragonite, and malachite, on stamps from Benin.  (I hope I haven't shown these before!)

I hope everyone is having a great summer, and looking forward to a great fall.  My thoughts are with those of you on the East Coast of the USA (including my parents) who are facing the rain and wind from hurricane Irene.

Theme next week: The ocean.  Beaches, islands, coral reefs, fishes, whales, sharks.....
Then we are going around the world.

Africa is truly rich in natural minerals. I have a similar set of stamps, but they come from Botswana.

this set is so nice! Macedonia has issued mineral stamps too, but they are really plain and so unattractive...:(

The triangle shape seems appropriate for minerals in a way.

Benin is one of those places I didn't know about. I should have looked up Dahomey (former name) last week when I was wondering about some stamps shown on my postcards.

Interesting stamps. I wonder is that the way triangular stamps are usually produced, alternating directions?

Lisa B said...

Lovely designs and the sheet with these must look great with the alternating stamps.
