Structures in nature #2 - Solid materials like rock, soil, crystal

in Education2 months ago

You may remember my recent post (https://peakd.com/hive-122108/@kalemandra/structures-in-nature-water) about water structures. Now I'm going to continue running my ideas about ordered structures becoming from chaos.

The second post in this topic is "solid materials", like rocks. They can also be formed by water, as mineral deposits, formed by natural forces or fracture, etc. Notice, that the physical laws are always the same, only the circumstances change. The result is an inexhaustible variety of forms and patterns.
