Artist's Palette

Piece description from the artist

This extraordinary display of colors in the rocks is in Death Valley, California along a 9 mile drive called Artist's Drive. These colors are caused by the oxidation of different metals – red, pink and yellow is from iron salts, green is from decomposing tuff-derived mica, and manganese produces the purple. Another gift of nature for all to enjoy.
