Caption: Light micrograph of "Chinese script" structures in an aluminium alloy. The Chinese script consists of dendrites of aluminium-copper-iron-manganese surrounded by the primary, or host, dendrites of aluminium-silicon alloy. The spaces between the primary dendrite arms are filled in places by an intermetallic chemical, copper aluminide, which is seen as the small magenta areas with green rims. (Polished section, ammonium molybdate etch). Magnification: x6 at 35mm size, x15 at 6x9cm size. Ref: MICROCOSMOS, fig. 7.13, page 132
