Agate anatomy

Post by Geopressure »

A variety of interesting growth features are seen here. Dendritic filaments or tubes, hemispheres, and fortification banding. A few healed fractures thrown in. Quite an eco system for a rock...

Very nice!

Do you use Zerene? If so, a stereo pair of this might be a great companion. Your previous agate example inspired me to experiment with some work involving crystal inclusions, and I've been really impressed with the 3D stereo results I've been seeing from my early work with included quartz (to be posted when I finally find the time).

Stereo pairs are a good idea..have never gotten into that but I'm putting it on the list :)
