Continuing my selection of fractal crystals  cheesy
Here is a bismuth crystal displaying beautiful fractal patterns in 3 dimensions.
Such crystals are very rare in nature and not that spectacular.
Most but of them, like this one, are synthetic and grown in labs. The colors are the result of surface oxydation.
The fractal pattern is formed by growing straight and suddenly forming right angles at random.
As a result, they form, most of the times, spirals at many scales.
Enjoy !

And what about this one ? Doesn't it remind you of something ?
Kaleidoscopic IFS ! Of course !
It is a kind of black garnet.

What started me off in fractals was the notion that plants and trees in particular derived their shape from a combination of biology and spatial constraints,that is a space that the leaf and branch could fit into, rather as the roots are shaped by the cavities between soil particles. But your images show that this spatial shape is intrinsic. The internal dynamics of the crystals form the shape.

For a living organism i would automatically presume internal "vital" dynamisms, but crystals show this vitality is inherent in all matter, not just biological.

Another nice find.
Pyrite crystals normaly tend to be very simple: I have one which is just a big perfect cube. So simple it looks like it was man made.
But, wow, this pyrite has become mad !  huh? Can anybody guess what parameters were used, here, by mother Nature ?
