Sunday Stamps #117

Oh my, I have been looking forward to this week's Sunday Stamps.

Our theme is minerals, rocks, geology, environment.

As some of you have deduced, I love this topic!  Imagine my excitment recently upon receiving a card from the Ukraine, and turning it over to find:

Stamps of tiger-eye and Beryl (I think).  The stamps appear iridescent and have that 3-D look to them, which the scan cannot capture.  Marvelous!  And triangular too!  Join me this week, and don't be afraid to interpret this theme broadly.

Theme next week:  Lighthouses, or other public structures.

i love the theme too! i have a collection of semi-precious stones at home, sometimes i just hold and observe them...beside these gorgeous ukrainian stamps i dont think i can find any, excepts for the mini-sheets that croatian mail issued a few years in a row :)

I haven't seen any stamps showing minerals. I would never have imagined they would look as pretty as the ones you have. I can only offer rock formations.
