Essential Australian Museum minerals


What does a mature, reasoned science–degree student undertake when at the Australian Museum with close friends? Naturally, locate the geology section and photograph the wonders that bear resemblance to foodstuffs.

From top to bottom clockwise, we have a rambutan, crab sticks, dark chocolate, caramel, some tomato baked potatoes, cookies and cream, potato crisps, a passionfruit slice and a scone with chocolate.

The full gallery of culinary delights can be viewed on Flickr, for those so inclined.

Special thanks to Sashin for organising the day. And to all of you lovely guys, it was an absolute blast to catch up :).
