Caption: Tourmaline mineral. Polarised light micrograph of tourmaline crystals. This pattern is caused by the simultaneous crystallisation of two or more minerals in a melt at a certain temperature (the eutectic point) during cooling. This image has been obtained using cross-polarised light (or 'crossed nichols').
