Mineral samples that make up an ongoing collection of raw elements that are used in the manufacture of satellites.

 

Certain mineral samples have even etched with the coordinates of the mine//quarry they came from, and diagrams of the satellite which took the image of the mine//quarry that resided on Google Earth when I acquired the sample.

 

They act as artefacts of this satellite and extraction enabled age.
