Greenland Ice Sheet – 412 Years Before Present

Greenland Ice Sheet – 412 Years Before Present

from 300.00

Thin Slice
Depth: 134m
Age: 412 Years Before Present

Once again, the exact same thin slice of ice as in the previous photograph explodes with unexpected color when lit by polarized light. The colors depend on the particular thickness of the ice cut, as well as the angle at which each ice crystal sits within the slice. The crystals are not large, but the various shapes and colors are nevertheless visible to the naked eye. That said, a special high resolution camera offers an appreciation of detail and color impossible to see by eye.
