“Life cycle of Axis,” carved green beryl, aka beryllium aluminum cyclosilicate, aka emerald. Obtained by Marshall Field on his expedition to Madagascar in 1912, although it is unclear if the carving was added at a later time.
I like to imagine the world when Field returned with this specimen, the massive undertaking of a worldly expedition, the delight and wonder of an unexpected natural treasure in hand.
This Spanish moon moth is flaunting his good looks in the handful of days he has left to live. Unable to eat after emerging from his cocoon, the adult devotes all of his remaining time and energy to reproduction.
Sorry this is late! Enjoy, everyone! Please thank misachips for all her hard work on cleaning this! I wouldn’t be able to do this without her! Also included are the rest of the character designs for the third season of Junjou Romantica. You can find the other designs in act 38. (I don’t know why Emerald split them up like that, so don’t ask me).
Do not upload this to any manga reader site. I don’t want to bring any more attention to my scanlations, so please don’t do it.
And with that, that’s all the releases from the Winter issue! The Spring issue of Emerald will most likely at the end of April! There will be another chapter of Junjou Romantica, Kisa Shouta no Baai, and more. See you then!!
