Image-wise: More than just a grain of sand

Professor Gary Greenberg searches through sand grains with acupuncture needles to find and arrange the fine crystals, which he then photographs. He's traveled the world looking for these tiny specimens.

Viewed at a magnification of over 250 times real life, tiny grains of sand are shown to be delicate, colourful structures as unique as snowflakes.

When seen well beyond the limits of human eyesight, the miniature particles are exposed as fragments of crystals, spiral fragments of shells and crumbs of volcanic rock.
