The macro gemstone photography of Danny Sanchez reveals another world entirely. When going that deep into the anatomy of such sparkling beauties, it becomes clear that the patterns and depths found inside are reminiscent of larger landscapes found in the real world. Of course, these images make people question what is real and what is not.

Titled 'Gemstone Inclusions,' the macro gemstone photography focuses specifically on defected precious stones. According to Design Taxi, "Sanchez worked with three light sources, a motorized steeping rig, and specialized software that allows him to stack multiple images to render depth." An impressive feat, the macro gemstone photography offers a stunning new perspective of such objects. It is not everyday people are able to look at gemstones under the microscope like this.
