But unfortunately, you know what they say about 'all that glitters...'
The tiny, rock-hard fruits of Pollia condensata, a wild plant that grows in the forests of Ethiopia, Mozambique, Tanzania and other African countries, can’t be eaten raw, cooked or turned into a beverage.

I just heard about these this morning. Apparently they are not pigmented, but rather the surface reflect certain wavelengths of light by refracting it around in layers at the surface. Supposedly one of the most reflective living things known on earth.
the indigo bunting is a bird that has a similar type of sun reflection..if you saw the bird in NO sunshine it would appear brown, but when light reflects off of it's feathers it appears the most beautiful blue
Bloom where you are planted.
