First draft: April 19th, 2016 | Last update: April 19th, 2016


We have more photomicrographs of minerals, but they are not available yet as this page is under construction. The photomicrographs posted so far are tests resulting from the recent setup employing the home-built z-stage. This method reveals promising results and it seems likely that many more will be added.
