My first post.
This is Quartz with Petroleum inclusions from Pakistan. Photographed with EOS 5D II and MP-E65. Convoy S2 365nm from behind.
The crystal is about 10mm tall. Stacking of 200+ images

The geology behind that must be interesting. How on earth does that form?

Excellent angle.
I look forward to seeing more minerals.
I keep meaning to take a convoy on hikes, but for get. We have some interesting quartz around us. But not nicely polished like this.

Beautiful! What was the size of the specimen please, requiring such a large number of slices for the stack?

The initial post says 10mm. Meaning we are around 3X at least, thus a high number of images are required for a good stack of a "deep" 3-D object.

First, I´m not sure how it's formed in nature. There must be some bobles in the crystallisation and somehow the petroleum seeps in.

As for stacking, I use a large aperture to avoid distortion, that's why I need so many frames. In addition to get a smooth and sharp image I also use some overlapping.
StackShot is used to automate the recording of each image
