Rock Skin

One of the kids my wife takes care of called the outside part of the mineral its "skin". I think that is a really cool way to see that rock. Plus, I think it potentially tells us a lot about perception, language-learning, and even perhaps naive understanding of topology. It made me wonder what she thought the skin was for: Would she think is was to protect the crystal?
