Magical Gemstone Collection

I am fascinated by other people’s collections. I’m not much of a collector myself, I do dabble a bit, but there’s something about the dedication one gives to their collection. I recently came across these beautiful photos by balanced.crafts of a mineral geode collection and I just had to share.
