Beautiful Minerals Waiting to Be Found
Designer/art director Dan Hoopert, who jumped onto the Stash radar in 2018 with this lovely CG product film, is back with an exquisite personal piece he calls “a short visual exploration into the world of undiscovered rocks and minerals.”
Dan Hoopert: “The International Mineralogical Association (IMA) currently recognizes around 5,000 distinct mineral species. Some, such as the major rock-forming silicates and carbonates, are well known and found in abundance the world over. But most are documented based on just a few known occurrences.
“It’s unlikely that scientists will stumble across many new finds of singularly abundant minerals on Earth, but numerous rare minerals are probably yet to be discovered.”
