The Giant Crystal Project Contest Page

Pentagondodecahedral ("pentagonal") pyrite crystal from Murgul mine, Turkey.
Prize specimen similiar to this one.

We would like to welcome you to a little "Giant Crystal Contest" and ask you for your help in designing a nice logo and a banner for this site.

The best contribution, i.e. the winner of the logo design and the winner of the banner design respectively will get a prize. The prize is an almost perfectly developed pentagondodecahedral pyrite crystal - see image above - from Cakmakkaya mine, Murgul, Turkey, which is not giant, but roughly 2 cm large. However pyrite crystals of this shape and perfection are pretty rare to obtain.

Somebody asked, which image he can take as base for the logo and banner. Well, I think basically any image on this site can be used...though personally I would prefer the giant crystals of Naica mine.
