“To see a world in a grain of sand,
And heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
and eternity in an hour.”

When Blake scribed this poem, he probably knew that because everything is connected, it's a reflection of everything else. You can, therefore, see the beauty of heaven in a wildflower and in a tiny grain of sand. If you need additional evidence, take a look to Dr. Gary Greenberg’s work.


Greenberg is a fascinating person. Until the age of 33, he used to work as a photographer and filmmaker. But then, he moved from Los Angeles to London and earned a Ph.D. in biomedical research. His curiosity for nature and his background in photography led him to develop the high-definition 3D microscope. He now has 18 patents under his name.


With this invention, Greenberg can capture pictures of grains of sand up to 300x magnification. The photos reveal that even little aspects of Creation are beautiful. Just perhaps, Blake was onto something…


Here are some of his stunning pictures of magnified sand:

South Point on the Big Island of Hawai’i is the most southerly point of land in the US and the source of this sand. Those translucent green grains are olivine. At South Point on Mauna Loa’s southwest rift, the pounding surf erodes a forty-nine-thousand-year-old volcanic cinder cone made of olivine. As the cone erodes, the olivine crystals become beach sand. Very few beaches consist of pure olivine; nevertheless, if there's olivine in the sand, that indicates it's a volcanic region. The deep-red grain is volcanic rock. Magnified 250 times.

The beach at Plum Island, Rowley, Massachusetts, the northernmost barrier island in the US, gets its pink color from garnets in the sand. As garnet is denser than most other sand grains, it gets left behind as the waves sweep the less dense material farther away. Magnified 60 times.

Those roundish grains are ooids, grains of calcium carbonate that precipitated from the ocean water along margins of the Great Bahama Bank, one of three areas in the world where ooids are actively being formed. Those are from Joulter Cays, located about ten miles north of Andros Island in the Bahamas. The shallow water over the bank results in strong tidal currents; this keeps the ooids in near-constant motion and results in carbonate precipitation around the grains. Magnified 75 times.

These tiny, glassy orange spherules originate from a fire-fountain volcano which erupted more than 3.8 billion years ago. Apollo 17 astronauts found this “orange soil” on the rim of Shorty Crater in the Taurus Littrow Valley. Magnified 340 times.

Here's a collection of particles isolated from lunar dust collected from the Fra Mauro Formation during the Apollo 14 mission. All three particles were formed during a meteor strike. The dark gray particle on the top left is agglutinate, in which smaller particles have become encased in impact melt glass. The other two are more breccia like, the particles welded together during impact. Magnified 240 times.

Colorado’s astonishing Great Sand Dunes are the highest sand dunes in North America at around 750 feet. This beautiful sand contains a variety of sediments blown from the old floodplain of the Rio Grande River and sediments which have eroded from the nearby mountains. Minerals identifiable in this photo include the clear quartz crystal (near center), the caramel-colored feldspar grain with the ninety-degree angles, as well as the two pink, angled-to-rounded garnet grains.
