Faulted limestone


I collected this on Mt. Lykaion in the Peloponessos of Greece during the summer of 2010.  Following complete 3D photography of this specimen, I will then have it ‘thin’ sectioned along closely spaced cuts that cross the specimen at right angles to the fault trend.  Microscopic analysis of the thin sections should reveal at the microscopic scale the history of fracturing, faulting, and sealing, …over and over again.
