    Herringbone Crossbedding! Happens at tidal areas, and is basically crossbedding happening where there's two currents instead of one.

    The classic place to find it is in beach sequences, and the best place to find a beach sequence is where there's already a beach

    I feel really inadequate providing neat geology things and you already know all about it.

    Don't sweat it, it's really cool that you've included it to begin with! Plus, y'know, it's been a big part of my education, there's a good reason why I know a lot about these things

    I'm already having to do that in another game, actually, because I made the foolish mistake of creating a character made of crystals who is really into crystals. Is crystals the same thing as geology?

    Crystals are a part of it, yes! They're not something I'm too interested in, so I'm less knowledgeable on them, but I can help a bit if you need it!

    So, crystals usually grow from minerals deposited by water or magma (depends on the crystal). Larger crystals are the result of slower cooling and deposition, smaller crystals get deposited faster. There's not a standard size for a crystal, so long as there's a source of the mineral that it's made of, and there's space for it, it can just keep growing.

    Most crystals have cleavage, planes in which they will shear off in a flat surface. Some have only one plane, some have multiple. Some though, like glass and Quartz, have no planes of cleavage.

    Pure crystals are a single uniform colour, but that's pretty rare in nature. Instead, you often get coloured crystals. The colours are chemical inclusions. Amethyst, for example, is quartz with iron inclusions, along with a few other bits.

    Note that there's a higher concentration of inclusions toward the top of the crystals.


    Finally, the oldest object on Earth is a crystal! There's a zircon crystal that was found in Australia, and it's been dated to be 4.375 Billion years old (± 6 Million years). It's tiny, the rock it was a part of is long gone and the crystal itself is an inclusion in a different rock.

    I think the University of Wisconsin? They published the paper on it, at any rate. There's a few really old zircons at the site they drew it from, which is Jack Hills, in Australia. Like I said, it's tiny, only about 400µm (0.4 mm/0.015ish inches) in size, so it's not exactly something you'd look at in a museum.

    Just to give a quick description so Alyssa can give an assessment, Leah would've slipped and got her foot caught between a couple of rocks for a moment, putting her weight down at an awkward angle. So there'd be some grazes along both the top and bottom of her foot, probably with the start of some bruising too. Enough to be painful to walk on, at least.

    My gut reaction to 'wanna cauterise your foot?' is 'that sounds like a bad idea', but let's see if Leah's got the medical insight!

    I realize that it's not really stated exactly what's in a first aid kit, but based on how they seem to work in the game, my assumption was that they were similar in purpose to a modern field medical kit, in which case they'd probably have something to cut bandages and/or clothes. Given it's a Londo one, I assumed it would have some kind of small knife for that purpose. If that doesn't seem legit, though, I can edit.
