i liked the page for my school’s lgbt* center on facebook and my mom just sent me a message that said
“now all of china knows you’re queer”
please deliver this reply to your mother:
she laughed so hard i think she exploded
It’s back and still beautiful!
oh my god
This is an image of Tourmaline, photographed from two different angles with polarised light.
Tourmaline is Pleochromic, meaning it changes colour as the angle changes. This isn’t a surface effect like the changing rainbow colours on an oil slick, it happens throughout the crystal.
The crystal structure in Tourmaline is anisotropic, which means it looks different from different directions. That means light coming in from different directions experience different effects and can get absorbed in different amounts, leading to something very cool.
It also happens with other crystals, like this Cordierite
There needs to be a video of this!
Here’s a gif. I like gifs. This is Iolite, the gem version of Cordierite, changing colour as the angle changes. Pretty. If you absolutely need a video though, here’s the source
It’s so beautiful.. I love you ;-;
We’re proud to present our first photoshoot picture! Our model is sporting the very first prototype of Axent headphones.
We received a lot of great feedback and constructive suggestions in our last post. We will take them all into consideration and make some changes in the next prototype. Over-the-ear instead of on-top-of-the-ear will be implemented in the next version, as well as new materials.
We’re very grateful for all the support and we hope everyone will continue to help us improve our headphones step by step.
