Magical Monents on a Grey Dreary day!

Just had to share this little bit of magic with you!
When i got up this morning the day was cold and grey, drizzly rain and leaden sky. The house was cold too - the log burner having gone out over night, there was condensation on the windows - pretty miserable, so I set about lighting the fire.
As you can see on one of the two windows we have in the sitting room, I have a few hanging crystals, picked up here and there, given by and exchanged with friends. They to hang limply, no shining in the sunshine today!
But the strangest thing happened - as I turned from lighting the fire, I saw a bright fire like glow on top of my mule chest - amongst my geodes and crystals. It was so bright I thought something was on fire. Maybe someone had left a candle burning (although who I dont know - but these things flash into your mind!).

There was a faint ray of sunlight that had reflected off/through a crystal in the window - on to the Amethyst geode and on to the quartz cluster - the quartz looked as if it were on fire, these photos do not capture in any way, the brightness, or intensity of the glow.

Again the photos are rubbish really - there was a mini rainbow effect across the front of the amethyst geode, and the quartz radiated all this light which in turn lit up the crystals around it and bounced all around the room!
Quite magical! It lasted for a little while, and cheered the morning!
