Microscope Pictures of Agates

A couple of weeks ago I had a few slow minutes in the museum so I decided to pull out my microscope and look at agates close up and personal. I happened to have my old point and shoot digital camera and snapped off a few shots down one of the eye pieces.

First -- a couple of shots of polished agates with the microscope's top light on.  The first is Brazilian and the second is Laguna.

Here are a couple of more top-light photos of rough Lake Superior agates.

Now a few back-lit shots of Brazilian slabs.
