I am so proud of this daisy. She's the daughter of a daisy some friends gave to me years ago. It's beautiful on so many levels. This is a stone I found while hiking in the desert near Jacumba. It seems to be almost purely a single mineral crystal. The crystal has sheared off in these beautiful, pure white, perfectly flat faces. They shine brilliantly even though they've never been polished. I didn't even wash it. I need to do some more research to identify it.
