Looking at a stone

“I was looking at this thing just yesterday,” he said, smiling. “It was nine in the morning when I put it under the microscope. Outside it was sunny, just like today. I kept turning the rock around, looking at all the fissures, the intrusions, the dozen or more different crystal formations inside and around…then I looked up, and thought that a storm must be coming, because it had gotten so dark…then I realized that it was not overcast, but the sun had been setting – it was past seven in the evening.” Quote taken from this review.
