nice "frozen" image of a rock trying to liquify from the outside in. As usual, great shot of the frothy crust John K.

Beautifully-prepared thin section, Anne. This is the type of TS that gets my blood pumping!

Excellent TS of the Berthoud! At first you could mistake the crust bubbles for Chondrules? Great history and the link is excellent.
