Everyone needs the perfect t-shirt to complement an everyday, laid-back look. The ideal top for so many occasions, this lightweight cotton tee custom printed with an Australian mineral thin section photo will keep you comfy and looking smart.
The image shown is one of a series of Australian Minerals thin section images taken by my sister Sue Hanson during her career as a geologist. This photograph is number of 7 of 12 and depicts PYROXENE - a magnified view (under crossed polars) of an agglomeration of pyroxene crystals.
HOW THE PHOTOS WERE CAPTURED:
These photographs were taken by Sue Hanson during her career as a geologist. This is the process in Sue's words:
After cutting and roughly trimming with a diamond tipped saw the rock is slowly cut, ground and then polished to a thickness of 0.03mm (30µm). Using resin to hold this incredibly thin slice of rock onto a glass slide the constituent minerals are now ready to be viewed under a polarising microscope. The diagnostic colors produced by projecting various wavelengths of light through the rock sliver, in conjunction with mineral shape and its association with other minerals are used to determine the mineral type. The diagnostic colors and shape of the mineral can also tell the experienced petrologist the approximate chemical composition of the mineral.
