Caption: Reflected light micrograph of a silicon crystal. Silicon is the second most abundant element in the earth's crust, occuring as silica (silicon dioxide) and in the silicate minerals. Pure silicon is a dark grey metal with a diamond lattice structure and high melting point. In the ultra-pure state, it is grown as crystals for use in electronics - the famous 'silicon chip'. Magnification: x25 at 6x7cm size.
