Alchemists may be able to weave gold from lead. None can forge pure glass from water. 500 meters beneath the waters surface, ocean divers seek the source of this mystery. Seemingly inanimate translucent towers of complex geometric alignments grow from no apparent substance. Using chemical mastery, these sponges blueprint crystals of such architectural complexity and engineering finesse, that many humans have tried to imitate their beauty. But try as they wish, they have all fallen short. And whilst darkness consumes the world around them, they stand as a shining beacon of white light, delicate glass networks adorned with a symbiotic glow of microbial life.
