Wait, why is this pattern upside down?
Bowen's reaction series is an order describing how minerals precipitate out of magma, with Mafic minerals like Olivine precipitating out at higher temperatures. So why does my pattern have the mafic minerals at the top? Let me explain!
So I did think about what order I should put the crystals in while I was designing the product, and for the most part I put mafic at the top. There are some products like the shoes that are neutral (they go from side to side), and the printable fabric had to have a repeating pattern so it goes from left to right as well. Some of you pointed out that magma rises up, so mafic minerals should be down at the bottom. I chose to put it at the top for three reasons:
Anyhow I'm excited to see the feedback and the debate! I will be making a few more items over the next few weeks including quite a few that can be rotated any which way you like, whether you like to replicate textbooks or magma or your own unique sideways orientation.
