Hi list, Tom Phillips here, I have some crust micrographs taken in
reflected cross polarized light of a thick slice of NWA 2371 an H4. The
heating/cooling caused the crust to crystallize like nothing I have seen before.

I haven't posted them to the Gallery yet but it is well worth the time to
email me and I will send some shots in an email.

I would welcome any thoughts on this and if any one has noticed it before.
It really is cool!

Hello all,

Looking at crust on various thin sections under the microscope it is very
common to see a mineral, such as an olvine crystal, on top of the crust. It
is not as even as it appears to our naked eyes. A few old photographs on my
website illustrate this fairly well...


Here is the crust on an oriented Gao-Guenie...


Clear Skies,
Mark Bostick
