Caption: Mica schist folds. Polarised light micrograph of folds in a micaceous (mica-containing) schist. Mica schists are common metamorphic rocks that can be recognised by their schistosity (fine planar alignment of minerals) and the presence of micas. This example shows strong folding of alternating bands of quartz and muscovite. This image has been obtained using cross-polarised light (or 'crossed nichols').
