Caption: Kelephytic corona. Polarised light micrograph of a kelephytic corona formed around a garnet crystal (black, upper right). This corona, or rim, around a crystal is where reactions took place between the crystal and its surrounding host rock. Hence they are also known as reaction rims or reaction coronas. This image has been obtained using cross-polarised light (or 'crossed nichols').
