Photomicrography Navigation Page
Last update: February 20th, 2016
This site was set up to show some of the resulting photomicrographs of inclusions and phenomena in gemstones and minerals documented with a Canon EOS-1Ds mounted on a Wild-Heerbrugg M8.
The setup evolved constantly with the latest addition being a rudimentary yet rather effective home-built z-stage to closely monitor focus step increments required for acceptable image stacking.
Photomicrographs on this site are arranged in a thematical way in order to keep an overview. Besides some technical information, references are also provided - not only on photomicrography but also on gemstones, minerals, geology, and chemistry.
