|QUARTZ CRYSTALS FROM LAGARITA, COLORADO. LENGTH OF LARGEST CRYSTAL (TERMINATED ON RIGHT) IS ~1.2 MM.|
Well the holiday season, at least for me, has come and sort of disappeared; and, it certainly was a pleasant experience. A request to Santa involved "rocks and minerals"--no surprise here. My subscription to Rock and Gem was renewed and a Celestron Handheld Digital Microscope appeared under the tree! The latter has finally been unboxed and plugged in and experiments have started. I am still learning and trying to understand the mechanics (for example, can the photos include a mm bar?); however, preliminary results look promising. More information will be forthcoming.
