Red crystal formations : thus was born the stereochemistry
I have kept for many years an old cask in the cellar of my house before deciding to make firewood. Its interior walls, in the dimly lit cellar, seemed covered with blackish storage and amorphous. But when I took her out and was illuminated by sunlight I felt the thrill of discovery. The amorphous layer now appeared made of red crystal formations shaped like shells, which were arranged groups of transparent, colorless prismatic crystals that sparkled like diamonds. It was a unique show.
