The Patterns of Nature

This collection of patterns is from the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. All the motifs seen here were created by studying atoms under a microscope and then using their crystal structures to decorate different materials. From top to bottom, the photos depict: beryl-based lace, hemoglobin wall coverings, zinc hydroxide tiles, and an aluminum hydroxide silk tie.
