A Gastropod in full colour.

The QCC

These photos are of a thin section I made from a Gastropod fossil I purchased from the Rock Shed.

Initially, under plain white light the slide looked rather drab, but once the polarizers were put in place the fill matrix inside the Gastropod showed many coloured minerals.

The photos are of a cross section of the middle of the Gastropod.
