Strikingly fluorescent thin-section photographs of meteorites

Meteorites have taken on a relatively sinister hue lately, following the aftershock in Russia’s Chelyabinsk that injured hundreds of people and crippled mobile networks. Looking at Tom Phillips’ thin-section microscopic photographs of meteorites, though, alien debris just looks cool in a a benign sort of way.

To craft the images, Philips skips Photoshop and color filters, though he does make use of retardation filters and manages color and contrast with cross-polarized light to create that elusive sum-of-the-total experience for the viewer.
