The layers of that crystal are interesting. Reminds me of sedimentary rock. http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/med ... dor-Chasma

Charles, in these shots, the 3D rendering is stunning.

Thanks all!
Are these stacks?
Yes. Not that many images, but all are stacks.
in these shots, the 3D rendering is stunning
That is directly attributable to the oblique illumination. It really can work well together with polarized light when there are interest surface contours to the crystals.
