Christmas is approaching fast. Here is an attempt to make a Christmas card composed of sand grains. You may say that it is artistically not very high standard but you see here really tiny objects that were painstakingly arranged in an attempt to make the scene reasonably recognizable.
With this card Sandatlas wishes you all Merry Christmas.
White snow is quartz sand from Florida. Stars are forams (Baculogypsina) from Japan. The snowman is made of forams as well (Sorites from Cyprus). His eyes are amphibole grains (from Spain). There are some sea urchin spines (Baleares Islands) and bryozoans (The Caribbean) as snow-covered bushes. Red lights are almandine garnet crystals (California). The whole scene is about 15 mm in width.
