Karen | 4 comments Read in the 1970’s a person sees a tiny world in the crack of a ring and finds a way to visit it, I seem to remember the first thing he sees is a girl by a pond.

Karen | 4 comments Yes i remember it from high school in the 70’s it seems a kid found a ring (jewelry) and was intrigued by a scratch/crack in it, as he stares into it he motices movement then uses a magnifyng glass to look in it and sees a tiny girl sitting by a pool. Somehow he is able to shrink and journey to the world. I think there was a battle inside the ring also.

Mai | 1191 comments Searching: novel, "a ring" "shrinks" this book was the first result:
The Girl in the Golden Atom by Ray Cummings.
A classic work of science fiction, this novel was one of the first to explore the world of the atom. The Girl in the Golden Atom is the story of a young chemist who finds a hidden atomic world within his mother’s wedding ring. Under a microscope, he sees within the ring a beautiful young woman sitting before a cave. Enchanted by her, he shrinks himself so that he can join her world.

Mai | 1191 comments I'm glad that was your book. That's why this group is great! Different people think of different combinations of words when searching and sometimes it works!! Or someone might have read it too and remembers it, of course.
