When I worked as a gemologist and appraiser, we occasionally would take photos of the cool inclusions we’d find in gemstones.  I took one of an awesome garnet in diamond inclusion (it’s pre-digital and I have no idea where it is, in a box somewhere…) through the microscope.

So I was excited to see this post about a photographer specializing in photomicography of gemstones:

The only frustrating thing about this post is that it doesn’t tell you want the inclusions are or the gemstones!  Be sure to click through to Danny Sanchez’s website to find out more.
