Caption: Rock microveins. Light micrograph of a thin section of a rock, showing numerous thin, quartz-filled veins (white) that developed during different phases of the rock's existence. Different sets of veins can be identified by studying their alignment. The age of the veins can be determined by studying how they have been affected by later phases of deformation.
