I’m sorry but it confuses me why everyone freaks out about diamond rings
This is a Diamond engagement ring (kinda obvious)
And this is an Opal engagement ring.
Just my opinion but why isn’t opal a giant thing :? You also get crazy variations like the Lightning Ridge Black Opal….
Dragons Breath Fire Opal…..
Even this fucking Harlequin Opal that looks like a rainbow on LSD
…JUST… OPALS MAN
this is my favorite gif and i did not expect this

When someone speaks of you negatively, be flattered. To be in someone’s mind is to have power over them. Revel in the fact that they subconsciously reserve thoughts and energy for you.
This is gold.

Losing yourself in a labyrinth
Here is something special I happened upon by coincidence in a French database today. These unique drawings are found in a handwritten book from 1611 produced by Nicolas de Rély, a monk from Corbie. We know little about the author and the book is relatively unknown in scholarship, which is kind of amazing considering its topic: a study of medieval labyrinths. These large objects were mazes of up to 40 feet in diameter, built into the floor of cathedrals of twelfth and thirteenth-century Europe (see Chartres Cathedral, lower image). Church visitors, which included a lot of pilgrims, had to undertake a journey to its centre - the latter on their knees, by means of repentance. The labyrinth is also an intellectual exercise, of creating an object of perfect harmony, of balance and calculation, like the Gothic cathedrals which housed them. The monk in the early 17th century was so fascinated by them that he devoted a study to their shapes and routes, replicating them in detail: what a beautiful way to lose yourself!
