Still – life for luck

An Indian coin for luck, with moon stone from India, looking like a drop of crystal – clear water, catching the silver light of the rising moon. There is some sort ofย  magic – looking star on the rupee, which means I don’t know what, rising over the strange shape. This shape is Jantar – Mantar astrological observatory, built in 1724 by the king – mathematician Raja Jai Singh II. Being in India, it is worth of discovering, together with the secret poetry of mathematics immured among it’s walls; I wonder if there is a place like this anywhere else.
