Things-That-Are-Awesome-Thursday, or every day, is Rocks in Museums. It sounds boring (i.e. "who wants to go look at rocks all day,") and is a little out of left field, but when you actually take the time to look, museums have some totally amazing rocks.
They have crazy variated and interesting forms and vary between the most neutral of neutral colors and most supernatural bold colors.
With the right eye, they're more than inspiring. They definitely aren't your roadside gravel.
