What is a thin section?       What do all the colors mean?    
27 grams.   L4

TKW 200 kg. Observed fall 6 September 1918, Saratovskaya oblast', Russia.

Eye Candy: Cover-slipped Thin Section images; perhaps with uncrossed or crossed or parallel polars, perhaps with a first order compensator ( red tint) or a quarter wave plate, perhaps with reflected light or both reflected and transmitted light, or other permutations. Have fun figuring them out!

Trick or Treat - some images have "skulls" looking at you.

nice work Bill...thin sections are always fun. I've been recently reviewing the "Atlas" from Marvin Kilgore/Lauretta and comparing to similar thin sections I have.
