Rock Types "Colour: Grey or pink but with dark streaks and layers. Texture: Medium- to coarse grained. Characterized by discontinuous, altering light and dark layers, the former usually having a coarsely granular texture while the latter, which often contains mica, may be foliated. Structure: In addition to the gneissose texture described above, gneisses tend to be banded on a large scale with layers and streaks of darker and lighter coloured gneiss. Mineralogy: Feldspar is abundant and, together with quartz, forms the granular, lighter coloured layers. Field relations: At the highest grades of metamorphism rocks may approach melting temperature when they are able to recrystallize freely and so produce the textures characteristic of gneisses.

Crystals Azeztulite is among the highest vibrations in the Mineral Kingdom. It has been said that it stimulates the three 'ascension points', at the base of the spine, the middle of the abdomen, and the center of the brain. These points are believed to be important for people choosing to consciously enter higher vibrational realms while in the physical body. Azeztulites are stones which have been engineered etherically to carry the energies and communications of a group soul called the' Azez'. According to their channelings, the Azez, who are here in non-physical form, station themselves underground in power spots such as Sedona's Cathedral Rock and California's Mt Shasta, bringing to Earth a positive energy that they call `the nameless light", which assists planets and people in transitioning to higher frequencies. The stone Azeztulite is said to be their special conduit for this energy.

Minerals and Gems More than 4,000 naturally occurring minerals—inorganic solids that have a characteristic chemical composition and specific crystal structure—have been found on Earth. They are formed of simple molecules or individual elements arranged in repeating chains, sheets, or three-dimensional arrays. Minerals are typically formed when molten rock, or magma, cools, or by separating out of mineral-rich water, such as that in underground caverns. Rocks themselves are made of clusters or mixtures of minerals, and minerals and rocks affect landform development and form natural resources such as gold, tin, iron, marble, and granite. Silicates—including quartz, mica, olivine, and precious minerals such as emeralds—are the most common class of minerals, as well as the major components of most rocks. Gemstones Many minerals form beautiful crystals, but the most prized of all are gemstones. Historically gems have been divided into precious and semiprecious classes.

Kim Kardashian News and Photos | Perez Hilton We’ve seen people get plastic surgery to physically look like the Kardashians, but what if you could dress like them too?? Not only is it significantly less expensive, it’s pain-free too! And with Khloe, Kim, and Kourtney’s different styles, it’s easy to pick your fave. Or even mix and match! Take Kimmy for example… Anything that shows off her very breast assets is a must-have! Though one thing we've learned from Kim is that she only rocks neutrals and dark colors. A little black dress, gold sandals (like this affordable pair HERE), and sleek locks, and you're basically good to go. All right… ready for Kourt and Khloe? Homepage | Shakira Josh Brolin says joining ‘Sin City 2’ was never just black and white - Story HOLLYWOOD — Josh Brolin enters the dark, sexy world of Frank Miller's and Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," as a private investigator who comes face to face with the woman (Eva Green) who broke his heart, sending him on an alcohol-fueled spiral four years earlier. He instantly falls back under her spell, even though he instinctively knows she's bad news. The Dwight McCarthy character he plays is the same one played by Clive Owen in the original 2005 crime drama based on Miller's bullets and babes-filled graphic novels. Miller, who created the popular graphic novels and co-directs the sequel with Rodriguez as he did with the first, describes Dwight as a metaphorical figure. "He's the character that changes the most over time in ‘Sin City,'" he says. When Ava Lord (Green) begs Dwight to save her, he feels compelled to become her protector again, even though it means putting his own life at risk. Q: Did you go back and watch the original "Sin City"? Brolin: Yeah.

How To Get The Undercut Hair Style Without Shaving Your Head (PHOTOS) For the past two months, I've wrestled with the idea of letting my hair stylist shave off my Afro into a buzzcut like the one we spotted on this gorgeous model in Soho. Discovering that I have a weird-shaped head underneath my thick curls has stopped me from making such a dramatic transformation. But I'm considering easing into it with a faux undercut. Worn by rebellious teenagers and rockers during the '80s and '90s grunge era, the undercut hairstyle (shaved or shorter hair on the sides and longer on top) has had more glamorous reinterpretations in recent decades thanks to Kelis, Rihanna and Cassie. TRESemmé celebrity stylist Jeanie Syfu also mimicked the shaved undercut for Charlotte Ronson's fall 2011 show. Step 1: Make a deep side part extending just past the ear and section off a diagonal portion toward the back of the head, separating the top portion with a clip.Step 2: Apply mousse to the bottom section and blow dry back, pulling hair to one side using a boar-bristle brush.
