George Calver, English instrument maker

George Calver (1834-1927) English scientific instrument maker. Calver's interest in astronomy began in childhood when his local clergyman showed him a reflecting telescope and challenged him to produce a mirror of better quality. He accepted the challenge, and spent his life producing mirrors for telescopes. His business flourished and grew, and the high quality of his work meant his mirrors were bought by amateur and professional astronomers all over the world. He continued working into his nineties, and by the time he died had produced as many as 4000 excellent optical mirrors

Petrified wood Featured Print

Petrified wood

Petrified wood. Petrified tree logs from the Late Triassic Period (over 206 million years ago). Petrification is a term used to describe the fossilisation of wood. It occurs when pieces of wood fall into sediments and are rapidly covered, preventing normal decay. Over long periods of time the wood decays. As it decays, the wood is replaced by minerals which are deposited from solution in ground water. This forms an exact replica of the original, preserving the texture of the bark and even the growth rings. Photographed in Petrified Forest National Park, Arizona, USA
