Caption: C70 fullerene. Polarised light micrograph of a thin film of buckminsterfullerene. This is a third allotrope of carbon, and consists of 70 carbon atoms arranged in a hollow spherical structure. Since the discovery of the 'buckyball' in the early 1980s, structures with more than 700 carbon atoms have been mooted. Reflected illumination. Magnification x50 at 6x7cm size, x25 at 35mm size.
