Glass block featuring Sue's geological thin section images. The image shown depicts a magnified view (under plain polarised light) of pyroxene crystals being altered by feldspar laths. The actual rock section photographed is 1mm width.

The thick glass frame is a heavy solid piece which perfectly highlights the stunning mineral art Sue captured during her career as a geologist. Comes complete with a card describing the mineral and the process Sue used to create the thin section and capture the image.

All of Sue's Australian Mineral Series photos are available in this format. Just select the photograph number from the numbered image (last pic). Below is a brief description of each of the images:
