In the mountains there are streaks of white and red of various shades, as well as others jet-black.” (Surah 35 – Fatir – Ayah 27)

The ‘streaks’ refer to lines and courses in mountains. The text here refers to a fine point: the white lines contain different shades of whiteness, while the red ones contain different red shades, and both differ in the richness of colour and in the mix of other colours that give them their special appeal. There are other streaks of very black colour.
